The mission of the communication department 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, communities, and families.

This mission rests on three premises:

"The communication discipline at Geneva helped me grow as a person and taught me to interact well with individuals from diverse backgrounds. Classes such as Interpersonal Communication, Communication Theory and Public Relations set the foundation for my success in securing an internship with the Department of State working with both US and Mexican diplomats to further the US foreign policy. Powerful communication concepts taught from a biblical perspective provided me with an understanding of how these important skills can shape society and further God's kingdom." - Manny Bravo ‘23, Communication
