Why Journalism?

Our society needs Christians in digital media, government, markets, and ministry who can help people see the world clearly and thereby live rightly. That's why our Bachelor or Arts in Journalism trains young Christians to understand our culture and then serve our society in a deeper biblical way: by telling true stories of a fallen world infused with grace. PHC provides the solution...

The Paths

New Call-to-action

 

The Journalism program is designed with five career paths in mind. With an unparalleled foundation, students are prepared to serve and lead in the field best suited to their God-given talents and abilities. The Journalism program at Patrick Henry College will make sure graduates are ready for future success and impact wherever the journey leads.

 

 

1. Journalism

The calling of a Christian journalist is to tell captivating stories that integrate professional standards with a biblical worldview and a deep grasp of human nature.  Our Bachelor of Arts in Journalism trains young Christians to understand our culture and then serve our society telling true stories of a fallen world infused with grace.

Public Communication1

2. Public Relations & Communications

For those called to enter the public square, the Journalism Major prepares students to craft truthful and persuasive messages at the highest levels as press secretaries, speech writers, and more.

 

3. Advocacy & Ministry

To change the world, you have to make the case. That's why PHC graduates are ready to make a difference, whether drawing attention to persecuted Christians or explaining public policy.

 

Business Media

4. Analysis & Business

The major's emphasis on seeing and thinking clearly is excellent preparation to engage the world of ideas through careers in scholarship, consulting, law, marketing, and policy analysis. Because ideas have consequences.

 

5. Graphic Design & Multi-Media

Building on their PHC education and internships, alumni have gone on to create powerful digital content in graphic design, photography, film, broadcast news, and website design, among others.
