The communications department offers two majors, each focused on an area of practice within communications: journalism and public relations. Each major requires an internship–and excellent internship opportunities for each of these are available in Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Chicago. We also offer minors in these areas along with a multimedia minor in which students can emphasize either film/video or graphic arts.
The courses we offer seek to develop Christian perspectives on the media, on the ways media serve and might serve their communities, and on the roles our graduates will play within media organizations. These courses are complemented by the leadership and production experience students gain as members of GoComm, a departmental production group serving the broader community, and the Beacon, the college newspaper.
