Olivet School of Media and Communication (OSMC) launches the redesigned general education course "Speech and Communication" in the Spring quarter to help undergraduate students develop communication skills in public speaking, small group interaction, and interpersonal relationships.
Demonstrating professionalism in speech and conduct at the workplace is essential for building successful working relationships with co-workers. The course is structured in a step-by-step manner to help students prepare a presentation from speech writing to final delivery. Students will learn to overcome the fear of public speaking and present with confidence.
Most of the study materials in this course are based on the experiences of a professional speaking coach. Students will also examine and analyze examples of public speeches by U.S. presidents, celebrities, athletes, and activists.
The course is offered online this quarter for students in California, Washington D.C., Europe, Africa, and China.
