About

The Communication - Rhetorical Communication at Houghton College is especially applicable to students interested in law, politics and the ministry.

Overview

Whether one seeks a career in broadcasting, journalism, public relations, advertising, government service, community development, law, business, teaching or the ministry, the ability to communicate is essential.

For more than 2000 years, the study of communication was the study of rhetoric. Our rhetorical communication track connects students to the roots of communication study while keeping the conversation relevant and current. Together, we apply rhetorical theory to contemporary forms of delivering messages.

The rhetorical communication major is designed to help students construct effective and ethically responsible messages appropriate to scholar-servants. In the church, workplace and community, such speakers play a critical role in creating solutions to problems, defending the rights of the oppressed and improving the lives of fellow humans.

Choosing to concentrate study in rhetorical communication means choosing to explore the rich past traditions and future inspirations of the field—the power of language and ideas to shape communities and nations. Rhetoric students wrestle with the principles of persuasion, reasoning and ethics as well as newly encountering the great rhetorical achievements of societies past and present. The study of rhetoric also helps students become more discerning message consumers.
