When we think about taking a speech communication course, we often think about giving presentations. However, speech communication, as a class, is just as much about interpersonal communication as it is about public address.

Taking an interpersonal communication course as an undergraduate is what made me change my major from music to communication studies. I was struck by the clear practicality of key interpersonal communication concepts in my everyday life and in my relationships.
