New Academic Minors Added to the Catalog


The Communication Arts department at Clearwater Christian College is pleased to announce the addition of two new minors. Beginning in Fall 2009, students will be able to enroll in Journalism/Mass Communication and Theatre minors. The purpose of the Journalism/Mass Communication minor is to provide English and communications arts majors with the opportunity to have a journalistic concentration. The theatre minor allows students who are interested in a possible future in dramatic production the necessary experience with all associated facets of this medium. Furthermore, either of these minors may be combined with any major to add weight to vocational, ministerial, or educational pursuits.

According to Dr. Bob Cundiff, department chair, the Communication Arts department is excited to offer two new minors in Journalism/Mass Communication and Theatre. Dr. Cundiff says he “believes that a number of students who are majoring in other areas—business, music, the sciences, for example—and are also interested in Journalism/Mass Communication or theatre, would be interested in adding a minor in one of these areas. It is great preparation to take courses, even a minor, in subjects in which they are interested. Graduates might be able to teach in these areas, or use the training in whatever vocation the Lord might bring their way.”

These additions to the CCC course offerings will give students a streamlined educational experience that will support a decision to enter the fields of communication, journalism, and theatre. Due to the automatic Bible minor present in every CCC degree, the student desiring to pursue a Journalism/Mass Communication or Theatre minor will aquire supplementary Biblical understanding, while promoting journalistic and communicative expertise.
