• The Communications Department at Coastal Bend College offers courses in English and Speech for fulfillment of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) core requirements and degree completion. Several courses are also offered for college preparation. Our courses, delivered face to face, online, distance learning, and hybrid (partially online and partially face to face), include Composition I and II, British Literature I and II, Technical Writing, Film and Literature, Speech Communication, Interpersonal Communication, Public Speaking, Integrated Reading and Writing I and II, and English for College Readiness. Our department prides itself on challenging our students to become better thinkers, readers, writers, and speakers. In our classes we strive to encourage students to move away from easy, conventional thinking and move toward critical questioning. We firmly believe our courses prepare our students for both academic and professional success. Additionally, our classes are known as some of the most fun on campus. We look forward to seeing you soon in our classes!
