Communicating skills are a must in any profession, and you can sharpen your skills with Iowa Western's Communication Studies program. This program combines theories of speech, business, psychology, and sociology.
As you work toward an Associate of Arts degree, you’ll focus on learning the concepts and practices of human communication within business organizations. Emphasis is placed on practices within diverse backgrounds. This program typically enrolls fewer than 20 students, which lends itself to more personal interaction with instructors.
The Communication Arts department is housed in Stuart Hall. All full time faculty have individual offices and hold office hours to work closely with students. Communication classes are held in Stuart Hall, as well as other adjoining buildings.
The IWCC Communication Club was founded in 2011, to give majors and non-majors an inviting place to meet others, improve communication skills, and learn about diverse cultures. The club hosts two on-campus speech tournaments for IWCC students only. IWCC students can compete in an informative speech contest in the fall and a persuasive speech contest in the spring. Club sponsors are Nicole Juranek, Jamie Stech, and Elizabeth Duncan.
