Bachelor of Science

Learn to communicate your faith effectively

In a culture that lacks clarity, we need more effective communicators who can serve in a variety of contexts.

Build a foundation.

This degree will help you build a theological and philosophical foundation for communication.

Integrate your studies.

Communication degree students will be provided with the ability to integrate their studies with communication-based issues that Christians face around the globe.

“ This program has given me a deep appreciation of the many ways we communicate, but most importantly, this program points me to the greatest act of communication: Christ dying on the cross to show God’s love for me. ”

Joel Lee — Tyrone, GA
