Return to Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical

The courses in the Speech program are designed to promote self-confidence and speaking ability in order to enhance students’ potential for achieving their personal, educational, and professional goals. The program serves the degree requirements of students in a variety of majors, technical fields, and certificate programs. Course topics include Public Speaking, Interpersonal Communication, Business and Professional Speech, Oral Interpretation, and Voice and Diction. The program also offers pronunciation and public speaking courses for the non-native speakers of English.

All electives should be chosen in accordance with the degree requirements at the college or university to which the student will be transferring. Some four-year institutions may not accept all courses that are listed under “area of concentration” as part of a baccalaureate major. Students must check with their advisors in the Fine & Performing Arts/Speech Communication Department and/or the four-year university to which they plan to transfer for information on the 2+2 agreements.

Students who intend to major in Speech and have not yet decided on the senior college that they will attend, should meet with their PAC advisor and follow Palo Alto College’s generic degree plan for Speech.
