Department Information

Mission
The Department of Communication's primary mission is to fulfill students' oral communication general education requirement. More specifically, students develop skills to effectively communicate in interpersonal, intercultural, group and public speaking situations. Communication courses provide students opportunities for personal enrichment, enhancement of social development, and career and professional growth. Associate of Arts degrees in Communication from Sinclair can lead to successful transfer to four-year colleges or universities. This can provide career opportunities in such areas as communication, journalism, broadcast media, education, business, industry, government, law, ministry, social services, public relations or provide valuable communication skills to enrich any career. Specific articulation agreements have been developed with Wright State University and University of Dayton.

Vision
Communication is the study of interactions between people in interpersonal, small group, public speaking, organizational, and mass media settings. This degree can lead to a successful transfer to a four-year college or university baccalaureate program. A communication degree can provide opportunities in journalism, speech education, business, industry, government, broadcast media, law, ministry, social services and public relations. Through careful course selection and internship experience, a program of study can be planned to satisfy students' particular educational and career interests. Enhancing communication skills provides invaluable benefits for all students, regardless of major. See an academic counselor for appropriate course selection.
