Why Is a Communications Degree Important?
As a species, humans have the most advanced ability to communicate. However, that does not mean we are inherently good at it.
In order to be successful in our professional and personal lives, we need to communicate effectively.
Above and beyond our jobs and families, good communication skills allow us to better communicate the love of Christ to others. It's true!
Knowing how Christ loves and being able to convey it to others with clarity and accuracy are vital if we are to win the world for Him.
The most effective communicators consistently open themselves up to many varied and new communicative situations. They are not afraid to engage in novel experiences and challenges.
