If you are eager to learn, work, create, and lead in an award-winning communication department, the Goshen College Communication Department wants you! Our top-notch program recognizes that written, visual and verbal communication skills are critical in our everyday lives – in our friendships, our families, our schools, our communities, our churches, and our jobs. We will partner with you to nurture this gift of communication, preparing you to enter the workplace from a running start! Professors in our communication program will work alongside, mentor, and challenge you as you take concepts to a professional level. They will provide you with opportunities to “learn through doing” in the classroom, the studio, the community and the world. The Goshen College Communication Department invites you to be a part of our engaged, hard-working, and supportive team as you prepare for life beyond college.
As a communication major or minor, you will be able to seize opportunities to take classes in journalism, public relations, radio or television broadcasting, writing, multimedia and film studies. Many courses are interdisciplinary and hands-on, growing the expertise needed to operate state-of-the-art equipment. You will be inspired to develop skills for putting your faith into action and expanding your world while communicating effectively and compassionately, with an eye toward serving others throughout your career in the communication field. We welcome you to join our Communication team as we learn, produce, edit, work, study, film, discuss, question, write, grow, and have fun together!

Pat Lehman, professor of communication, arrived at Goshen College in the fall of 1994, after moving to the area from California. She stayed because she loved teaching, loved her students and appreciated GC’s global emphasis.
Elizabeth, a 2016 communication and English writing graduate, got behind a video camera her first semester and has been hooked ever since. She hopes to someday travel the world and film the stories she sees and hears.
Joelle Dussek graduated from GC in 2005 with a communication degree. She's worked on-set with Food Network’s “Chopped,” “CSI New York,” HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” and the ball drop in Times Square on New Year’s Eve 2014.
