There's a great demand in the United States and around the world for men and women skilled in creating and managing the elements of modern communication. It's this department's aim to strengthen students' personal, public and professional communication skills.
Many communication students acquire valuable training and experience at one of more of the following facilities on or adjoining the campus:
- 88.3 KJRN The Journey, the University's FM radio station
- Channel 18 KGSW-LD, the University's TV station
- The Studios at Southwestern, our digital audio and video production facility
- The Southwesterner, the University's news website.
The department encourages all upper division majors to complete an off-campus internship in their major field. Even before graduation, and sometimes as a direct result of internship positions, many of our majors are hired by these communication firms.
Communication alumni from Southwestern who have continued their education through graduate school have done so very successfully. This department prepares men and women to meet the challenges and to take advantage of the opportunities of Christian communication professionals in today's world.
