Communication, Media, & Culture

Communication is pervasive, such that Aristotle claimed that it is the one discipline that affects all the rest.

We commit to provide an academically rigorous program of study which explores communication and a Christian worldview, with its implications for personal development and career possibilities.

It means aiding students in studying communication as the art of interpreting the meaning and significance of people’s shared meanings and cultural activities. What words, images and acts mean, where they originate, and how they sometimes change over time is the concern of the vibrant and thoughtful Christian. An implicit concern is with a developed personal epistemology– how we know what we know. This specifically concerns what we believe, why we believe it, and how we know it is true.

Our Communication alumni are serving as political communication directors and lobbyists, event planners, marketing and public relations specialists, teachers, pastors, missionaries, news media reporters, actors, radio announcers, community relations directors, media critics, and filmmakers.
