At Trinity, you’ll be equipped to think critically and biblically in every area of life as you are challenged to apply your faith to your coursework and classroom conversations. And instead of approaching general education as a checklist of courses to be completed, Trinity’s distinctive educational approach gives you the freedom to choose courses that are most interesting and relevant to you. Working closely with your faculty advisor, you can select from electives to enhance your major, apply toward a minor, create a double major, or simply experience something new. The choices are yours! All along the way, you’ll be cared for and supported, ensuring that you make the most of your college experience.
As a communication major, you will study a variety of time-tested theories about how humans communicate and what factors can foster or prevent successful communication. You will apply your communication skills in relevant situations, such as business interactions, communication across cultures, and family relationships.
You will learn how to develop your own theories about contemporary communication and then put them to the test by designing and conducting surveys, interviews, focus groups, and experiments. Communication majors will also focus on developing their written, oral, and visual communication skills. You will receive training in effective strategies for both online and in-person communication.
