  What We're All About

Our curriculum is structured on the basic assumption that people's ability to communicate orally in an effective manner is vital to successful social interaction. Two areas of emphasis are offered: Organizational Communication and Rhetorical Studies.

Organizational Communication is the social scientific study of the role of communication in the creation of interpersonal, small group, and organizational structures.


Rhetorical Studies is the humanistic study of speech from its origins in ancient Greece to the role of rhetoric in shaping the modern world.
