COMMUNICATION SKILLS DEPARTMENT The Communication Skills Department of LaGuardia Community College prepares students with the necessary cognitive tools to read the wide variety of college-level materials with the understanding and retention necessary to succeed in LaGuardia's degree programs, and/or to move on to four-year schools. The department is committed to providing the student with the intellectual framework, the background knowledge and critical reading and thinking skills necessary to become an educated person in society. The focus of a CSE course is exposition. Our courses are preparation for the introductory courses in different disciplines students must take for their majors. Thus we try to give students background knowledge and skills that they can use to read their textbooks, to listen to class lectures, and write class assignments. Our classes consist of lively discussions, arguments, careful listening and thinking. Our work-load is heavy - for instructors as well as students. Students tell us they put in more hours in our classes than in most of their other college classes, and they use what they are studying in reading class - in their other classes, in their future careers and in their lives as readers. The Communication Skills Department is located in Room E 115. The phone number for the Main Office is (718) 482-5625.
