Message From The Senior Associate Dean

Welcome to the School of Communication & the Arts at Regent University! We challenge our students and each other toward excellence in craft and depth in faith. Our committed Christian professors have included a Fulbright senior specialist, Telly Award and Emmy Award-winning artists, and numerous authors, scholars and experienced professionals who have worked in major media and entertainment markets in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, New York, Washington, D.C., and around the world.

Peter Fraser, Ph.D.

Senior Associate Dean, College of Arts & Sciences

Associate Professor, English & Communication Studies

The study of communication and the arts is central to what God has called us to as creatures made in His image and redeemed in Christ Jesus. Our work together as a vibrant Christian community brings order, meaning and beauty to those around us. We search for new ways to take joy in God and his creation by engaging in aesthetic beauty, story, humor and emotion. It’s through all these various means that we have the opportunity to connect with others at the highest professional level. In doing so, we make visible the invisible God and bring Christ to the world.
