The ability to communicate effectively is essential in all careers and throughout life. A solid foundation in speech is particularly vital in the practice of law, politics, public relations and broadcasting, as well as business and the teaching professions. The BSC Speech Communication curriculum provides a balance between speech theory and practice, as well as core and selected communications courses. Graduates obtain the first two years of coursework toward a bachelor's degree at a four-year college or university.
Beneficial high school courses include speech, communications, English and writing. Participation on a debate team or in a forensics competition is helpful.
Students who complete the curriculum requirements earn an Associate in Arts degree.
BSC has cooperative agreements with Dickinson State University and Minot State University and several other four-year institutions that allow students to continue with a bachelor's degree on the BSC campus. Those transferring to other institutions should consult the catalog of the transfer institution for possible BSC course substitutions, if needed.
Contact your BSC advisor for assistance with transfer planning.
