Communication Minor

The Communication Minor equips students to utilize communication skills and media technologies to spread the gospel message of Jesus Christ. It also allows students in other professional programs to develop complementary skills in media communication. Such skills can enhance ministry, nonprofit management, youth ministry, teaching, missions, and other fields.

Students in the Communication minor will benefit from Johnson’s accreditation, affordable tuition, and an experienced and engaged faculty passionate about each student’s success. Students can choose from a wide range of Communication course options, completing 24 credit hours for the minor. A Communication major is also offered.

When students complete this program, they will be able to do the following:

  • Demonstrate a historical and faith-based understanding of the impact of mass communication on culture.
  • Employ knowledge of media law, ethics, and history.
