Language and images can create meaningful messages—messages that influence, equip, encourage, and teach. Our communications major prepares you to use your God-given expressive gifts. Every course blends a biblical worldview with scholarship, exploring the ways that language and images can be employed to create messages in the new virtual public and cultural dialogue. Our communications program covers a wide knowledge area, incorporating audience analysis, live presentations, mediated messages, and written communication. Our faculty is committed to developing all the ways you may impact the world for Christ—with a focus on critical-thinking and effective communication skills.
