The department's programs are intended to develop articulate Christian communicators while preparing students in communications-related professions. The department offers two majors, with minors in speech communication, journalism, communications, and drama.
 
The mass communication major is offered through the cooperation of several departments whose courses include mass communication areas. It trains, primarily, those interested in journalism, broadcasting, audio and visual production, public relations, and fund raising. This major also provides a preprofessional foundation that enables students to take advanced work in a specialized communications area such as advertising or marketing.
 
Students interested in preparing for careers in institutional development (fund raising) are advised to take a major in mass communication (journalism and public relations concentration) or business. Additional electives in communications and business may be selected in consultation with the communications department.
 
The speech communication major emphasizes public, small group, and interpersonal communication. It is designed for the student intending to teach oral communication or is used as an adjunct to other preparations in which interpersonal and public speech communication skills are particularly important.
