The Department of Communication offers students a variety of areas of study in the theory and practice of human communication. The Communication Studies Program offers coursework in interpersonal, organizational, and public communication. The Communication Sciences and Disorders Program focuses on the study of both normal and disordered aspects of speech, language and hearing. The Education of Deaf Children Program offers concentrations in teacher preparation at primary, elementary and secondary levels, and in educational interpreting. All programs help students to become more effective communicators as well as facilitators of effective communication in others. Specifically, the Communication Studies Program offers the BA in Speech communication as well as an undergraduate minor. The Communication Sciences and Disorders Program offers the BS in Speech pathology and Audiology. The Education of Deaf Children Program offers the BS in Education of the Deaf. In addition, Communication Studies offers the MA and MEd degrees, and Communication Sciences and Disorders offers the MA degree. For more details, see the Graduate School catalog.

The Communication Studies Program provides opportunities to study interpersonal, organizational, and public communication. These areas encompass rhetorical and communication theory, public persuasion and argument, group communication, political communication, and public relations. Communication Studies courses contribute to a liberal education by teaching creative thinking, critical reasoning, and effective communication. Professional areas of study lead to careers in organizational communication and public relations. The program also provides a foundation for graduate study in communication as well as related fields such as journalism, law, business, and the ministry. Faculty and students in Communication Studies are actively involved in research and conduct programs and workshops for community and state organizations.

The Communication Sciences and Disorders Program provides opportunities for the study of normal speech, language and hearing and the associated disorders. The courses offered in this program are pre-professional and prepare the student for further study at the graduate level. Faculty and students in Communication Sciences and Disorders provide services to the University community and the public through the University Speech and Hearing Center and the Augmentative Communication Systems Laboratory, and engage in cooperative work with area schools, hospitals and other human service agencies. In addition, the faculty and students in Communication Sciences and Disorders are actively involved in research.

The Education of Deaf Children Program provides opportunities for study in two concentrations: Teacher Preparation and Educational Interpreting. Both areas of study focus on the unique educational needs of deaf and hard-of-hearing children emphasizing language acquisition, teaching methods and communication modes. Specialized training in communication modes is offered through sign classes and the Sign Language Laboratory. Supervised experiences are available for student observations, volunteer work and practicum in area public schools and the Central North Carolina School for the Deaf.

Criterion for Progression in the Major

Only grades of "C-" or better taken in Communication courses will count toward completion of a major in the Department.

Speech Communication Major (Bachelor of Arts)

Required: 122-123 semester hours

Speech Communication is offered in two concentrations:

Speech Communication includes interpersonal, organizational and public communication. The two concentrations offered are : (1) COMMUNICATION STUDIES and (2) ORGANIZATIONAL COMMUNICATION AND PUBLIC RELATIONS.

The COMMUNICATION STUDIES concentration is designed for students interested in the liberal arts study of communication theory and practice including rhetorical and communication theory, history and criticism of argument and persuasion, political communication, and interpersonal and group communication. This option is flexible to prepare students for graduate study and a variety of communication-oriented professions.

The ORGANIZATIONAL COMMUNICATION AND PUBLIC RELATIONS concentration focuses on the study of communication theory and practice with specific application to organizational and public relations contexts. Students in this option should be planning a professional career in a corporate or nonprofit environment.
