majors and Programs
The Communication Studies major helps students understand how messages work in relationships and in the larger culture. Students study how influence occurs, how leadership emerges in groups, the importance of understanding context, and the effects of the media. Though students have opportunities to improve their speaking, the focus of the major is more on learning to be a shrewd and appreciative critic of communication events. By developing a biblically informed communication lens, graduates are prepared to enter careers ranging from marketing and public relations to counseling and law.
