Communication plays a complex and profound role in shaping both individuals and society. This department seeks to promote an understanding of this process and an appreciation of both the art and science of communication. To this end, the department seeks to provide (1) an academic experience which teaches effective communication within the framework of Christian principles; and (2) opportunities to put theory into practice for the purpose of personal, professional and academic growth.

The Department of Communication offers a balance of our discipline’s focus on speech (presentations and performances, groups/leadership, and relationships) as well as professional specialization within the areas of corporate communication, public relations and strategic communication, theatre arts, radio and record industry, film studies, television and video production, multimedia journalism, live event media management, and ministry media.
