Why study Communication at CIU?

There are so many ways to communicate these days: digital, print, photo, video, audio. And you can study all of them at most any college or university. But at Columbia International University, there is an added benefit: you are challenged to “Communicate Christ Creatively.” Now that doesn’t mean that you’re only going to learn to tell Bible stories. You might do that. But there are so many careers in communication these days that need the touch of the Christian communicator. You could be one of them.
