Mass Communication

The Communication Studies major offers a concentration for those who want to pursue a more dedicated line of study in Mass Communication. The Mass Communication concentration seeks to produce culturally informed citizens with a high degree of media literacy who are thus well-equipped for service to the Kingdom in the creation and reception of mediated communication forms. The Communication Studies major operates five student managed publications that allow for hands on experience in a variety of contemporary media, including an online radio/podcast station, a video streaming and production unit, an online newspaper, the college yearbook, and social media platforms.
