Wagner College offers a world-class education on the most important form of human interaction, speech.
With public speaking classes taught as a requirement for every student of every major, we also offer more advanced courses such as Voiceovers and Stage Dialects.

For students wishing to test our of the general education public speaking classes, students should see the SPEECH PROFICIENCY EXAM FORM and read below.


The Speech Proficiency Exam can be taken to satisfy the speech requirement. It does not give you a unit. You would still need to take a class for a unit if you decide to take the exam.

There are additional packets in the Theatre Office located in Main Hall 16. Please feel free to stop by to pick one up. It explains the exam in detail and its requirements. If you do decide to take the exam, you will need to go to the business office, tell them you would like to test out of the speech class, pay the $25.00 fee, and bring Diane Catalano the receipt plus the top form of the informational packet. This can then put you in one of the speech exam test dates.

If you have any further questions, please stop by my office in Main Hall 16 or call 718-390-3223.
