The Communications Department at Saddleback College offers courses which develop and enhance oral communication skills at all levels. In this rapid-growing, ever-changing world, the ability to express ideas clearly, concisely and with self-assurance is an invaluable tool to anyone regardless of his or her field of endeavor. Students can focus on interpersonal communication, persuasion, group dynamics and leadership, or can improve and enhance their vocal and articulatory control. In addition, the oral interpretation and readers' theatre courses give students a means of communicating the human condition both physically and verbally, while helping them to develop a strong stage presence.

All students, whether pursuing communications majors or not, can also join Saddleback's Speech and Debate team as a means to further develop their oral communication skills.
