Former Governor
State of Washington

"My speech degree has been very useful to me in my career as a public employee. It's crucial that I am able to convey my ideas and messages not only to Washingtonians, but to state employees and leaders around the world. The classes I took improved my public speaking skills, and they have made me confident in my ability to address large groups as well as communicate in smaller, interpersonal situations."
