The Status of the Business and Professional Communication Course.
A survey assessed the current status of the business and professional communication course. A questionnaire was completed by faculty members at 39 Texas colleges and universities. Results indicated that 66% of the institutions surveyed offer a course in business and professional communication (with titles such as Business Speech, Oral Communication, and Business and Professional Communication), and with different approaches used, such as a combination course or a public speaking course. Results also ranked specific communication skills included in such courses according to their importance (including organization of ideas, self confidence, and eye contact), and indicated the class time devoted to the various skills. (Three tables of data are included; 22 references are attached.) (SR)
