Students’ Perceived Usefulness and Relevance of Communication Skills in the Basic Course: Comparing University and Community College Students
Format of Original
Basic Communication Course Annuals
Communication skills training is extremely important in terms of students’ career choices. However, few studies have been conducted regarding differences between community colleges and four-year universities in terms of students’ perceived usefulness and relevance of the study of communication in relation to career choice. The present study extends extant research by examining students’ perceptions of this issue. The participants in Study 1 were 155 community college and 291 four-year university students and the participants in Study 2 were 205 community college students.
