Communication Studies

​​​​The Department of Communication Studies at Orange Coast College is a comprehensive program with offerings ranging from traditional rhetoric and public speaking to modern communication studies. 
 The department has several long-standing traditions:

  • Individualized, face-to-face instruction, honoring the needs of students with support and encouragement.
  • Our decades-long history of national success in speech & debate competition, including six state and seven national championships.
  • Special concern with building teachers for the future.   Many speech & debate programs in California and around the country boast former students and associates of our team as their coaches.
  • Committed involvement in campus-wide issues.

We look forward to continuing to serve our diverse student body and engendering a critical approach to understanding the communication processes that affect us every day.
