The nature of a Communication program demands a hands-on approach to education. A working TV studio with state-of-the-art digital video editing equipment, a computer lab with the latest in computer enhanced graphics, presentations software, darkroom, and a student radio station all compliment the total education of the student.
The typical student can expect courses in all of today's communication fields from writing for the mass media to photography, from history of media to video production, from leadership in communication to design principles of electronic communication. Students will be adequately prepared to enter into any area of communication upon graduation.
Our passion for students! Our experienced faculty members are committed to the cause of Christ and devoted to a servant attitude. They want to be involved in the lives of students to help them achieve all that God has for them after graduation.
Immediately! Field education gives students the opportunity every semester to put into practice what they are learning in the classroom. In addition, the summer of your junior year, a 6 week internship is required, again furthering the exposure of the communication student to the realities of the ministry/job environment.
Students have room in the curriculum not only to major in Communication but also to take an additional minor in either Radio Broadcasting or Video Production. Students also may take advantage of our cooperative agreement with Midlands Technical College to earn a certificate in Information Systems Networking along with their major in Communication.
