What Communication & the Arts Alumni are Saying

Ian Miller | Cinematic Arts

Liberty helped me to be confident enough to go into any situation and hold my own. I’m not going to know everything, but it taught me the skills to figure out and ask questions and know how to interact with people on set.

Courtney Hogan | Digital Media and Journalism

My internship really helped put what I had learned into practice and made it come alive. Things I had learned in class, once I got here I was able to see them happening in front of me. It really helped me to have a much better understanding.

Jonas Larson | Strategic & Personal Communication

Graduate school has really challenged me to grow not only in my academic career but also my professional career...My time in this program has inspired and equipped me for my future endeavors.

Breann Carty | Studio & Digital Arts

After attending a state college for part of my undergrad I transferred to Liberty and loved it. The professors do a great job at encouraging you to push yourself further in your craft.

Tatum Sheppard | Theatre Arts

My time at Liberty shaped me as a person, as a Christian, and as a godly woman...Getting my education with a biblical worldview was critical in maturing me and teaching me to find my identity in Christ and not in the things that I do.
