The speech communication major provides students with an opportunity to improve their
personal, public and professional lives. Students study communication dynamics in
interpersonal relationships, groups and public settings. By studying how, why and
with what consequences people communicate, students will become more competent communicators.
Students will develop broad-based competencies in oral and written communication as
well as critical analysis. The articulated transfer major will prepare students for
further studies toward a baccalaureate degree in speech and/or communication studies.
The graduate of the AA program in speech communication will:
- Demonstrate knowledge of communication theories.

Biology Major/Student Trustee
"Staying local and coming to Allan Hancock College has been rewarding in so many ways. I am able to fulfill all my core courses like chemistry and biology to transfer to a four-year university. I have also become active on campus as a student trustee on the Allan Hancock College Board of Trustee. My time on campus has allowed me to develop my voice, as well as a plan for my future."
