Q: What will I learn to in a Speech class at Wallace?
A: Speech students learn how to work effectively in the contemporary workplace. They cultivate the skills to make group work pleasant and productive, run efficient meetings, deal with conflict before it escalates, work well even with the most difficult coworkers, prevent communication breakdown, and make presentations that impress decisions makers. Additionally, we prepare students to apply this knowledge to their personal and professional lives.
This program enables students to competently communicate ideas to others. To do this, students are taught skills in a variety of behaviors and the ability to choose the best approach for a given situation. Hence, the speech program instructors teach a variety of courses in order to increase students’ skills in being effective communicators.
In addition, we are committed to educating students about being effective critical thinkers and ethical communicators.
