“Impacting the World for Christ Through Media.”
With this motto, Communication at EC prepares students to be Christian communicators in learning, working, and serving with their minds, hearts, and spirits throughout college and life.
Communication incorporates information, technology, and community. In the senior project course, students showcase their knowledge and skills acquired through the communication curriculum.
Aside from completing 15 hours of core communication courses, students choose the digital media production or organizational communication concentration. These concentrations prepare them for graduate school or entry-level positions in a variety of career choices, including Media Production, Public Relations, Graphic Design, Video Editing, Advertising, Layout and Design, Marketing, Fundraising, Human Resource Development, Communication Training and Consulting, etc.
