Communication Arts

Communication with a focus on community

Communication Arts programs at Trinity shape students who are effective at listening and telling in all aspects of their lives. Taught with a Christian perspective, Communication Arts classes build leaders who seek the good of the other in all interactions, can critique mass media, make thoughtful decisions, and speak, listen, and create with integrity.

Earning a degree in Communication Arts at Trinity can prepare you for success in nearly any profession. Expect to enhance your ability to think critically, refine your written and oral communication skills, and improve interpersonal communications. These skills can all be strong differentiators in any position.

Graduates of Trinity’s major or minor programs in Communication Arts can be found working and thriving in a variety of fields including advertising, public relations, publishing, writing and editing, political campaigns, theatre arts, fundraising, and many other rewarding career paths.

Our campus is conveniently located near Chicago. That means our Communication Arts program students have opportunities to engage in a robust and diverse community, including taking advantage of cultural and social opportunities off-campus and a thriving performing arts scene, as well as professional networking opportunities that are hard to parallel outside of a major metropolitan area such as Chicago.

Dr. Bethany Keeley-Jonker loves thinking and talking about how messages change things in the world. “I love that I can read about a political or media controversy, or a new app, or a complex argument and have frameworks to help me make sense of it and give me something new to say, or a Christian way to approach the problem, or interesting questions to consider.”
