Speech Communication - Theatre Pre-Major

Speech is a subject that is a benefit to everyone, no matter what field he or she plans to enter. Even the research scientist, who spends most of his or her time in a laboratory, is expected to give papers and present seminars. Others whose work is people-oriented fields will find a good background in speech to be invaluable to success. Speech majors are frequently employed in the broadcast media, and they often continue for further training in drama. Speech and business as a combination may significantly enhance your chances for success in the business world.
