Communication is not just about public speaking. Organizational methods, interpersonal skills, and public relations are involved in communication.

Communication is a social process. It links humans through the formation, announcement, and response of a message, both verbal and non-verbal. Communication focuses on the analysis of these links and the paths that people take to interpret and understand messages.

Coursework at Lake Michigan College prepares you with the communication foundation that you will build upon as you transfer onto a four-year college or university.
