As a student in the Messiah College Department of Communication, you’ll step into a world of possibilities, all built around our mission. Through a common core of courses, you’ll learn to communicate ethically, listen effectively, and resolve issues graciously. Building on this strong foundation, you’ll gain specialized knowledge and practical skills in one of six majors:
All of our majors offer you both rigorous coursework and hands-on experience in our cutting edge facilities and equipment as well as off-campus through internships. Our students also have the flexibility to major, minor, or study abroad. A number of students also complete projects of their own creation, work alongside professors on research studies, engage in service learning through some of their classes.
As you explore new ideas and hone skills, you’ll find yourself encouraged to consider ways that your faith intersects with your chosen major. From stimulating class discussions to applied projects, from service-learning to building “COMMunity” with faculty and students in the department, we’ll challenge you to grow academically, spiritually, and personally.
