Terry Clark and Vera Barkus

Department Chair and Co-Chair
The Communications Department provides a fundamental education in language skills. We recognize that students take courses for enrichment or to transfer to four-year institutions or qualify for employment. We reach out to students with innovative teaching and assessment methods, including instructional technology, peer group learning and evaluation, team teaching, writing across the curriculum, and tutor assisted learning. We emphasize a unique approach to reading, writing and speaking, and prepare our students for the workforce and institutions of higher learning with the ability to read and think critically and analytically.

We offer courses in English, French, Literature, Reading, Spanish and Speech Communications.
