From modes of communication, past and present, to actual participation in mass media corporations, speech, communication and journalism classes offer students a rare chance to learn about what makes society tick.

Mass communication (COM) classes enlighten those who strive to enter the fields of communications, including media production, social media, broadcasting, film, advertising, public relations and corporate communication. Students can gain experience with hands-on classes in COM 260 Video Production and COM 290 Sound Design or by participating in an internship.

Journalism (JRN) classes cover the history and production of news content from print-on-paper to the real-time news cycle of social media.

Speech (SPE) classes cover traditional subjects like art of speaking well (SPE 102 Public Speaking), improving your people skills (SPE 110 Interpersonal Communication) and understanding people from different cultural backgrounds (SPE 215 Intercultural Communication and SPE 205 Gender Communication). Other offerings include Argumentation and Debate, Persuasion, Small Group Communication, Oral Interpretation and Voice and Diction.

Several classes are cross-listed with Business (BUS), Theater (THE) and Global Culture (GLC). The communications Department also administers the SCC Student Film Festival.
