Work Experience Programs for Speech Communication Students: A Time for Increased Emphasis.
Huseman, Richard C.
It is the purpose of this paper to provide an overview of the work experience concept for speech communication students. This examination is contained in the following four sections: the student and a rationale for work experience, the professor and a rationale for work experience, the process for maintaining a work experience program, and difficulties faced in a work experience program. Students should participate in a work experience program because a student with practical experience in speech communication is in a better position to get a job; the limitations of the classroom make it hard to learn; and in such a program a student can see the relationship between speech communication and the organizational modifications of bureaucracy. Teachers will find such a program useful as it helps to explain theory in terms of practical needs for improved communication. (TS)
