The ability to speak confidently and communicate effectively is crucial to professional and personal success. Communication empowers us to remember the past, act in the present, and anticipate the future. Communication is the vehicle by which we manage relationships with others in contexts ranging from "one-to-one" to "one-to-many" using personal and public speaking skills. When we can speak with integrity in a style that engages our listeners, we can accomplish just about anything.

The Speech Department at Maui Community College offers two courses to help MCC students improve their communication skills. Personal and Public Speech 151 is an introductory course that focuses on interpersonal, small group, and public speaking skills. The Principles of Effective Public Speaking - Speech 251 - is dedicated to helping students improve their public speaking skills. The Public Speakers' Page is for everyone interested in improving their speaking skills.
