Communication Studies provides students with attitudes, skills, and knowledge that will allow them to communicate effectively, clearly, persuasively, and vividly. Specific skills students will demonstrate are critical thinking, listening, problem solving as a group member, speech composition and presentation, conflict management, relationship maintenance and enhancement, and dramatic interpretation.

In keeping with the Seattle Central's strategic plan, the Communication Studies program emphasizes critical multicultural and intercultural education that teaches students to operate effectively in an increasingly multicultural society.
