Speech Communication Center

The primary mission of the Speech Communication Center is to ensure that the Missouri S&T campus is in compliance with the Missouri Revised Statutes by providing communication skills assessment to the campus’ new graduate teaching assistants.  The center also provides oral communication consultation to the campus, coordinating with the Department of Arts, Languages, & Philosophy to provide technical (recording) support to oral communication classes.

The Graduate Teaching Assistant Communication Skills Workshop, affectionately known as the Workshop,  is held twice a year the week before the Spring and Fall semesters start.

During the semesters we provide the SPEAK test for graduate students who are non-native speakers of English. 

For those who do not pass the SPEAK test or the Workshop due to language issues, we offer the American Pronunciation Class. Those who do not pass for other reasons, we may recommend American Pronunciation or Speech 85

We also provide assistance with oral communication in the classroom, please contact the center directly.
