About the Speech Program
Our Bachelor of Arts in Speech program prepares credible, convincing public speakers who are authentic and ethical. And, with a minor in business, political science or another area you care about, you will have something to say and be able to say it well. Here is a major that opens lots of doors, providing a highly sought after basic — but uncommon — skill.
Our mission in the Department of Communication and Media is to prepare credible, creative Christian professionals for a world where the mastery of communication skills and technologies is essential. We accomplish our mission by helping students produce, publish and perform original work that is both ethical and effective.
Department of Communication and Media
The speech major is offered by the Department of Communication and Media. Other majors and minors within the department include advertising and public relations, broadcasting, communication studies, cross cultural communication, video and film and visual communication.
Why should you choose SAU’s speech program?
The study of communication at Spring Arbor University is a hands-on experience, with a foundation in classical and Christian perspectives. All students complete a core sequence that promotes a thoughtful and ethical understanding of communication principles and best practices.
Throughout the program you will apply these principles. We offer extracurricular opportunities in writing, acting, broadcasting, designing, producing and researching in addition to practical hands-on experiences in the classroom. Each year, students win awards in state and national competitions and engage in meaningful internships.
