Oral Communication Proficiency

To fulfill the Oral Communication Proficiency, students must take one core-designated oral communication course, as approved by the Core Curriculum Committee. Approved oral communication courses will normally be capped at 20 students.
Why Oral Communications?

The cultivation of the skills and habits of good oral communication is necessary for an authentic Liberal Arts education. Accordingly, all students will be required to develop their ability to speak in a clear and coherent manner by taking one course designated as fulfilling the oral communication proficiency.
