Communication Studies Club was named Club of the Year for 2015 – 2016

club-of-the-year-2Mission Statement:

Santa Ana College Communication Studies Club is committed to enhance every individual’s communication abilities in a positive and productive approach. Students in the club are devoted to provide leadership, guidance, and support for Santa Ana College and local communities.

Who are we?

We are a student based organization at Santa Ana College (SAC). We believe in the power of communication and help students practice and gain communication skills that can be used in their careers, in classes and in their personal life. At every meeting we provide students with exercises and opportunities to polish communication skills they need to be successful and confident. We cover strategies on public speaking, networking, interview techniques, event planning, plus we give tips on how to give and receive awards, handshakes, introductions, effective group work and learning best practices for classroom communication and approaching professors. 

Are there courses related to the club?

Yes! Every CMST course that is offered to at SAC is related to club activities. We have seminars/workshops that expand on certain areas and our meetings cover different techniques that you can use in your all your courses. Here is the list of some of the CMST courses offered at SAC:

  • Interpersonal Communication, CMST 101–Learn how to listen, talk, argue, negotiate and interact better one-on-one.
  • Public Speaking, CMST 102–YES!  This is a learned skill!  No one is BORN a natural speaker.
  • Intercultural Communication, CMST 103–Learn how our different ethnicities, cultures, genders, and perceptions affect our communication with those different from us.
  • Argumentation & Debate, CMST 140–Learn how to incorporate logic into your thoughtful discussions.
  • Group Dynamics, CMST 145–You will be in groups for most of your life…SO, learn how team building, leadership, and motivation and conflict resolution happens when there are three or more people.
  • Voice & Diction, CMST 151–A requirement for those enrolled in the Speech Language Pathology Assistant major and a course available for anyone wanting to improve their articulation and pronunciation.
  • Gender Communication, CMST 206–Learn about how gender identification affects how we think of ourselves and others and how our thoughts affect how we interact.
