College of Communication University of the Nations

The College of Communication is dedicated to preparing graduates for global service and leadership in all forms of communication media. While some graduates go into the marketplace, specializing in illustration, design, filmmaking, cartooning, writing, acting or video production, others will serve specifically in a cross-cultural missions context.

In many areas of the media, the line between the marketplace and the mission field is rapidly becoming less distinct. Many students in communication fields pursue their studies to secure gainful employment after graduation. Although using state-of-the-art communication skills in this way is a valid pursuit, the College of Communication also challenges students to answer another calling. It is a calling to effect lasting change in the nations of the earth by raising a standard of truth. It is a calling to communicate the Good News of Christ to every tribe, tongue, people and nation in ways that can be understood by the recipients, no matter what language or cultural background they come from.

The skill-oriented training combined with character formation includes courses, seminars, individualized internships, and group field assignments. Graduates, school leaders and resource teachers include award-winning filmmakers, published authors, respected journalists, cross-cultural communication specialists, foreign language experts, and sought-after consultants. Many of them have earned the right to be counted among the vanguard of 21st century communicators.
