Speech Communication

Find your voice

Speech communication is the study of how we create meaning through messaging, contexts, channels and media. Harper College offers students the chance to prepare for a major in communication at a four-year university. As part of the program, students have the opportunity to participate in Harper's competitive Speech and Debate Team, The Harbinger Online, and Harper's radio station WHCM-FM Radio.

Start at Harper. Finish at a four-year university.

The Associate in Arts (AA) degree prepares you to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor's degree in speech, communication, and related majors. Speak with your advisor about the best courses to take to meet your academic goals.

Harper also offers institution-specific transfer information to help prepare you to transition to a four-year university. To learn more, visit our Transfer Information page or see your advisor.
