  Our Fourfold Purpose

In both areas of emphasis, our program is designed to meet a fourfold purpose:
  • To study the nature and process of oral communication

  • To develop the student's ability to communicate clearly, confidently, and rationally

  • To understand the critical role of rhetoric in shaping historical events

  • To understand the methods of the social sciences and analyze communication situations according to those methods
Students who study speech receive a broad liberal arts background which may lead to careers in law, business, public relations, management, teaching, the ministry, politics, broadcasting, personnel work, and public administration.
