Oral communication is the ability to compose, critically analyze, present, and deliver information through verbal interactions.
Graduates of the University of Wyoming should develop oral communication abilities throughout their undergraduate experience, including exposure to current technologies used for communication. Oral communication courses will assist students to achieve competence in composition, critical analysis, interaction, presentation, and delivery.
Entering students may meet this requirement by demonstrating the skills equivalent to the outcomes for Oral Communication through a placement exam, when such an instrument is available and viable. Faculty development opportunities will be made available for faculty and lecturers interested in teaching oral communication courses, and to facilitate student and program assessment.
