Our COMMunity Mission
The Messiah University Department of Communication values a holistic, liberal arts approach to our discipline. We adapt to trends and developments in communication as we stress the intellectual development, spiritual awareness, moral integrity and global citizenship of our students. The department’s mission is to educate students to become more competent, creative, and compassionate communicators in the realms of rhetorical, relational, mediated, and visual communication. Fostering connections between Christian faith and the study of communication in personal, vocational, and public life, we believe that communication can be used to solve human problems, promote meaningful relationships, bridge cultural divides, produce effective messages, and improve the quality of human life.
