In a classroom taught by working professionals, students are equipped with hands-on experience as well as working as a part of a team. There is a synergy between all emphases, as required in the professional world. Each year they work together to create projects like short films and graphic novels, which can later be used in their professional portfolios. No graduate of the Communications department leaves unprepared.

The essential elements of Christianity—evangelization (leading people to saving faith in Jesus Christ) and edification (discipling believers to maturity)—require practical communication skills. The Department of Communication, therefore, seeks to identify and develop the spiritual gifts of students relating to communication arts and sciences. Courses in the Department of Communication emphasize the theory and practice of speech communication and offer hands-on experience in specific professional fields such as broadcast and print journalism, creative writing, editing, graphic design, photography, computer graphics/animation, and video production/short and feature filmmaking. Students majoring in Communication lay a foundation for careers in teaching, law, advertising, professional writing and broadcasting, editing, digital video production, directing, digital video editing, graphic design, photography, missions, and church-related multimedia production.
