Biographical/Historical Note

The Department of Speech Communication offers both graduate and undergraduate programs. The undergraduate major in Speech Communication seeks to cultivate in its students highly developed skills in individual oral and written expression, in critical thinking, in group discussion and problem solving, and in conceptualizing the functions of communication. The Speech Communication major is particularly oriented toward helping students understand how communication principles apply to a broad range of contexts, e.g., governmental agencies, health care providers, courtrooms, political campaigns, cross-cultural exchanges, social movements. In this way, students graduate with talents and knowledge that may serve them well in whatever personal, community, and professional directions they choose to pursue.

The State Normal School for women opened in 1891 in a university-owned building and later moved to its own campus, in the section of Athens now known as Normaltown.

Carolyn Vance is now Mrs. Lauren Foreman, Buford, Georgia.
