The Cal Lutheran Experience

Communication major photo of student or faculty

As a communication major I have had the opportunity to discover and pursue many avenues in my college career. I've been able to build skills that are specific to writing and reporting news, but I have acquired skills that can help me outside of journalism, such as in movie production, web design, research and more.

Conversations with...

More than a dozen professional actors have come to Cal Lutheran's Preus-Brandt Forum for conversations with students in lively events moderated by instructor Markus Flanagan.

The advice and perspective I've gained from the events have been extremely helpful to my growth as a person and an actor.
