The communications program teaches students the strong verbal, critical-thinking and teamwork skills that employers seek in new hires. The rise in technology and social media requires close attention to the meaning and interpretation of messages. With this mentality, Geneva students learn to apply their skills to a variety of communication media.
More importantly, as a Christian institution of higher education, we encourage students to integrate their faith with communication. Communication is a gift from God and we are stewards of that gift. We believe that we are called to use communication creatively and compassionately to bridge differences of culture, embody servant leadership, and transform society for the kingdom of Christ.

The mission of the Department of Communication is to enable students to gain the skills, insights, perspectives and knowledge to become effective, competent, wise communicators as they represent Christ in their professions, churches, communities and families.
