Within English and Communication & the Arts, we interweave communication theory and practice; students learn theory and how to apply it in a dynamic environment. Advances in technology are also incorporated in our courses as they continuously impact the field. For instance, Second Life, Twitter, podcasting, Web 2.0 and blogs have altered how we send and receive communication. Studying changes in the field makes our educational experience relevant to the present and a foundation for the future. All of our coursework is explored through the lens of a Christian worldview.
The English & Communication Studies division educates students in writing, language and literature. In doing so, we hope to cultivate thoughtful, compassionate human beings, as well as equip majors for a wide range of professions. Employers in various disciplines are looking for English majors because of their skills in thinking and communication. But, beyond vocational preparation, the department seeks to cultivate in students an appreciation for the things that mark us as human: communication, analysis, discernment, and a love of beauty.
