Whether heading to graduate school, service work or into the job market, our communication major prepares you to work in teams, problem-solve, analyze text and data, and serve diverse audiences by speaking the truth in love.

About

Your communication major or minor may easily be combined with a major from another department, helping you achieve your specific goals. For instance, students interested in visual communication may complete a minor in art while students majoring in business administration may want to add a communication minor. The small number of hours required to complete a communications major allows our students to easily double major and graduate on time.  

Through rigorous classes, departmental activities and other hands-on learning opportunities, you will be prepared for a wide variety of careers in public affairs, media relations, church promotion, higher education, communication research, political communication, public speaking, organizational leadership and more.
