Communication Arts Concentration

The world is constantly changing and yet one thing stays consistent – the need to communicate. The Communication Arts Department of Providence Christian College exists to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to become effective communicators who work and create in various mediums for the glory of God.

The major explores the world of visual communication and modern media through observation and practical application. Each student is encouraged to consider their calling and career goals by taking a diverse array of courses that explore various fields and techniques found within the converging mediums of filmmaking, journalism, and theater. Students will apply their skills through various practicums such as producing film projects, writing for the school newspaper, and working on theatrical productions.

Benefits of Communication Arts Concentration
