Program Information/Mission:

Communications is the most significant tool of humankind. In various forms, communication is all around us and constitutes the basis for all human interaction. Courses at Illinois Central College are designed to allow the student to explore both the practical and creative natures of communication as it relates to the world in which we live. Illinois Central College provides three approaches to the study of communication - the General Communication Studies Option, the Mass Communication Option and the Public Relations Option. As a natural outgrowth and extension of communication classes, Illinois Central College's Forensic Union/Speech Team offers interested students the opportunity to participate in an intercollegiate forensic program, which has achieved several national championships. Students completing the Public Relations Option should consider elective courses in business, marketing, or political science.
