COM 160: Voice and Articulation

In this performance-based course, students are introduced to the verbal and non-verbal elements that are utilized in broadcast announcing. Focus is placed on the verbal basics such as breathing, pitch control and articulation, along with the non-verbal fundamentals of paralanguage and body language. These rudiments are paired together with copy analysis and script marking to give students a full understanding of the process of announcing in the many different fields of broadcasting. Practice in script reads, vocal exercises and self-evaluations give the student ample opportunities to understand and showcase these new techniques.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”

—F. Robertson
