Get ready for a career in journalism, marketing and beyond.
Tell Your Story
Think communication is just about talking? Think again. It encompasses so many areas, like journalism, public relations, advertising, marketing and ministry. In our increasingly media-first culture, we need Christians embedded in these fields and careers to share the love of the greatest communicator of all: Jesus Christ.
If you can’t seem to follow enough news outlets on Twitter, listen to the radio and podcasts incessantly, love to analyze commercials, or appreciate good storytelling and the written word, this just might be the right major for you. Plus, there are so many careers in communications.
Built on a firm foundation of media ethics, theory and practice and Bible classes that teach a solid biblical worldview, students who complete this program will earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication with a minor in biblical studies.
“For the word of God is living and active…” – Hebrews 4:12a

The Accelerated program consists of TWO terms:
Each term is comprised of FOUR course sessions. A course session runs for SIX classes and runs back-to-back across all the weeks of the year. Due to holidays and breaks, a course session may vary between 6-8 weeks. Exact dates for each term are available through the Accelerated Office.
Students may choose to take their courses either in class, online, or both.
Each student’s path to completion is unique, depending upon the courses you are transferring into the program. The curriculum plan above gives a broad picture of the required credits. If your transfer credits come from mostly one of those areas, you will need to take credits in the other areas. The remaining courses you need for graduation can best be determined after reviewing your transcripts. With flexible electives, Bible and Theology requirements, and General Education requirements, most students are able to transfer to LBC the maximum number of credits.
Credits for Prior Learning. Students can earn up to 30 life experience credits, through the Credits for Prior Learning evaluation process, which will often reduce the time to complete a degree. The life experience credit evaluation process is done after a student begins a program.
As soon as you are ready. LBC has 8 entry points per year meaning you are only ever a few weeks away till the next course starts.
Our LBC Financial Aid Office can help you navigate through the process. Learn more
