The Communication degree focuses on understanding the many ways people collect, interpret, encode and disseminate information through language and other symbolic systems. It is a growing field that allows you to “major” in flexibility, as communication is the number one skill sought in job interviews and is vital for just about every human interaction. On the most practical level, every organization, from business to nonprofit, must communicate effectively in multiple forms to thrive in today’s culture, making communication careers a part of virtually every segment of the marketplace. Our vision is to empower students with skills that will benefit their personal and professional lives, as well as equip them for excellent service in God’s Kingdom. Rooted in the ancient traditions of oratory and rhetoric, communication today includes the study of leadership, social media, public relations, and intercultural interactions.
The Theatre program provides training for the well-rounded theatre artist – and that could be you!

Theatre is a living artform; starting your first year, you can be a creative partner in our stage, film and TV projects. Other opportunities include studying at The Globe Theatre in London, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and internships at theatres across the country.
