Programme Structure

  • The study of different literary traditions and writing practices prepares students to move into professions of today (law, human relations, editing/publishing, education, marketing, nonprofit work, public service, government) but also adapt as professions stretch and morph. People who can think, imagine, and write effectively will always have a place at the forefront of our communities and professions.
  • The world needs clear and artful communicators and performers. Certainly politics, law, business, ministry, sports, entertainment, and the arts depend on individuals who can effectively reach diverse audiences through multiple media. Students in Bethany’s Communication and Theatre program learn how to create, deliver, and evaluate the interactions that shape our world.
