Watch the Communications video
To impact a fast-paced world for the cause of Christ, you must develop your ability to reach out, connect with people, and positively influence others.
In a word, you must learn to communicate.
BBC’s Communications program will equip you to do that. You’ll study under experienced professors who are passionate about using their skills for the glory of God and dedicated to developing yours.

The BBC Communications program offers two avenues of study: Theatre and Writing.
As a Writing-emphasis graduate, you will be well equipped for the role of writer or editor for magazines, newspapers, and ministry organizations. Grads may choose to pursue a wide variety of careers including curriculum writing for schools or Sunday schools, website editing, writing and/or editing Bible study materials, and press release writing.

Making the program your own
Theatre students are required to participate in a senior project and an internship.
Our goal is for you to combine communication and ministry while gaining practical experience and knowledge from qualified professionals. This can be accomplished through projects such as writing your own play, writing for publication, or internships at an off-campus television station, magazine, newspaper.
You will study with professors and instructors who love God and love the subjects they teach. Most importantly, you will study your field of interest in light of God’s Word and learn to communicate His truth more effectively.
As one of our professors so aptly expressed, the question isn’t, “What can you do with a Communications degree?” but, “What can’t you do with a Communications degree?”
Many options after graduation
You will earn a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Communications. You will graduate having completed coursework equivalent to a double major in Bible and Communications . You may elect to receive a B.S. in Bible instead.
You will be well prepared to enter ministries and careers in your area of study. Not only will you have gained intellectual knowledge, you will also have acquired hands-on experience that can be added to your résumé.
Graduates can consider the option of a graduate-level education. Many have chosen to attend top-level schools. Others have obtained career positions at magazines and publications, authored books, and participated in many aspects of community and political service.
What they say
After completing the Communications program at BBC, I was able to smoothly transition to a career in the magazine industry feeling adequately prepared for the job. Between ‘The Anchor’ campus newspaper, ‘The Tower’ yearbook, and class assignments, BBC offered many writing opportunities that prepared me with the organizational, professional, writing, and editing skills a job in print media demands.”
