Speech Communication, B.A.
The study of communication is relevant to everyone and applies to all facets of life – personal, professional, social and spiritual. As a Whitworth speech communication major, you will study how messages and interactions influence relational development, organizational function, and social and cultural perspectives and experiences. You will have many opportunities to put theories into practice, from internships to student media to the forensics team.
The major will ultimately equip you to listen empathetically, write compellingly, analyze insightfully and speak persuasively. Communication skills are valuable in a wide variety of career fields, particularly those focused on leading, coordinating and motivating others.
