English & Communication Studies

 

The English and Communication Studies area equips students to stay ahead of the rapidly advancing field of communicative art, as well as literature. You’ll be challenged to seek the truth and apply it in redemptive ways to all aspects of culture. We believe literary and communication studies enable us to better understand what it means to be human, how we may best live in community with others, and how to understand and evaluate the history and traditions that have helped to shape us. Offering several exceptional degree programs on the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels.

Faculty

Our distinguished faculty and staff include award-winning directors, artists and writers — all committed to Jesus Christ and serving at the highest level of professional excellence. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from scholars and practitioners who have worked in major media and entertainment markets such as Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, New York, Washington, D.C. and London.
