This course is intended to expose you to potential careers in communication-related fields, focusing on social media in Silicon Valley. We will meet with lead-ers at companies like Twitter, Patreon, and Google, examine cutting-edge tech innovation at Stanford University, and engage with professionals in public relations, ministry, academia, and entrepreneurship. We will also focus on how to thrive as a Christian in these vocations. Throughout this experience, we will enjoy the cultural and recreational opportunities offered by San Francisco, including Chinatown, Angel Island, The Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, and several other locales.

COM 397 is a major sheet choice for all Communication emphases, or an Elective for non-Communication majors.
