What Our Students Say:
Nickling St. Fleur-Rrustemaj, MA Communication
"I've discovered Communication offers options not found in other majors. I can pave my way into any profession, as a lawyer, or the Product Manager of a Fashion House, with an apprenticeship through the Department's Internship Program. When I attain my degree, I know I can have a career in whichever field I choose."
Janelle Collins, BA Journalism
“My first time in a class at Andrews was with Dr. Steyn. She encouraged me to get involved with the Student Movement, [Andrews University's student newspaper], as soon as possible to get experience. She really helped me figure out what I was here for and to become a better communicator. Everyone in the department is helpful and friendly. I’m glad to be a part of it.”
Moses Primo, MA Communication
"The Communication program has a clear vision of practical academic excellence. It also has networking opportunities for students. Every class I've attended has had numerous guest lecturers just for that intention."

"[During my internship], I gained experience in documentary production and DVD design as well as teamwork (the basics of which I learned in Group Dynamics & Leadership)....I grew deeper relationships with teammates, professional contacts and especially Christ, without whom none of the projects would have come to fruition."
