Want more ideas? Talk to Dr. Bruce Scranton.
Dr. Scranton has a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in mathematics. Prior to coming to Emmanuel, he used his mathematics education in a variety of ways. He started his career in a mathematics research and development firm, creating algorithms and software to assist in search for moving targets, for example, people lost at sea or submarines. While at GE he led the design and testing of optimal daily mission planning and scheduling algorithms for systems valued at over $1 billion per year. At Lockheed Martin he was the deputy program manager responsible for the detailed design of a $356 million global enterprise corporate information factory. Just before coming to Emmanuel, he was the program manager of the CDC’s BioSense Data Provisioning contract, which installed software and hardware at large emergency care hospitals to begin collecting information on bioterrorism and pandemic flu. The director of the CDC committed to Congress and the Secretary of Health and Human Services that 10 cities would be online in five months (by year's end), a task that contacts at CDC did not believe would happen in a year. “Relentless BioSense Team Meets 'Impossible' Deadline" came true when the tenth city came online before the end of that year.

Communication Studies graduates have entered a variety of professions and graduate schools. Here's what some of them have to say about their training at Emmanuel:
“I’ve really enjoyed the way my communication professors have been able to integrate Jesus and our faith in Jesus Christ inside the classroom. Some of the topics we deal with and some of the books we go through aren’t based on our Christian faith, but somehow they find ways to plug Jesus into many different aspects of what we learn in class. They find a way to put the two together in a way that’s understandable, and that has really helped me grow spiritually.
“I’ve never seen my professors as friends. I respect them but don’t really want to get close to them (maybe one). However, in the Comm. Department, I feel the support from you guys almost as much as my own parents! Thanks for believing in all of us.”
— Jordan Myers (’08), Corporate Communication Major
“I came to Emmanuel College on a soccer scholarship, and I had no idea what I was going to do. I was looking at the different programs, and I saw that Communication had such a wide array of things you could go into, from video to journalism, public relations, and layout and design. I thought, well, I have a wide array of interests, so why not go into something where I can develop a lot of skills for a lot of different areas.”
— Megan Williams (’06), Multimedia Communication Graduate
“Along with the faculty, the equipment in EC’s Communication Department is a strength of the program. They have Canon XL-1 and XL-2 cameras, and they edit video with Avid on the Mac platform. They have good lighting kits and great studio lighting. Whatever your imagination can come up with, you can create it in the Emmanuel College Communication Department.
— Brock Tibbs (’03), Multimedia Director, Trinity International Church, West Palm Beach, Florida
“The Communication Department at Emmanuel is like no other. The relationships I built with my classmates and professors will last a lifetime. They encouraged me to give my best and hone my skills—not just to get a good grade, but to glorify God with my life.”
— Amy Harper (’03), New York University Graduate Student, Master of Arts in Higher Education, Student Personnel Administration
“The Communication Department at EC was much more than an academic environment for me. Though the classes were challenging and served to prepare me for graduate school, what I appreciated most was the relationships I was able to form with the faculty. More than just teachers, they became mentors and friends.
“The classes I took were great. I learned to think critically about the media messages I received and improved my writing abilities. These two things have proven extremely valuable as I pursue my master’s in mass media studies at UGA.”
— Michelle Wheeler (’02), UGA Graduate Student, M.A. in Journalism and Communication – Mass Media Studies Concentration
“My experiences in the Communication Department at EC were a jumping-off point for me to continue on to graduate school well prepared. I was able to enter my master’s program in student affairs administration with ease.
“I’ll never forget how my communication professors challenged me to rise to the level of excellence. They challenge and support you, and that’s something that has given me the confidence to take risks and learn from my successes and my mistakes.”
— Candice Whitley (’02), M.Ed., Volunteer Coordinator/Public Relations, Uptown Shelter, Charlotte, N.C.
“A communication degree prepares you for almost any direction you will take in life. As an educator, I rely on my verbal communication skills to build relationships and influence the students I work with. As a pastor’s wife, I use my knowledge of video production and editing to help my church reach out to others using technology. As a doctoral student, I constantly rely on the written communication skills I developed as a communication undergraduate student at Emmanuel.
“The Communication Department at Emmanuel is full of caring faculty who possess real-life experience. I learned by doing, not just by listening. From writing press releases to producing commercials, I was able to gain practical experience and develop my communication skills in a variety of mediums, while being mentored by professors who cared about me and my future goals.”
— Christina Jenkinson Spearman (’01), East Carolina University Graduate Student, Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership
“The Emmanuel College Communication Department thrives with practical instruction from industry-savvy professors who provide and instill a passion to have an eternal influence in a world that is contemporary and constantly changing the way it communicates. The experience I gained as a student at EC has opened more doors for me then I could have ever imagined as a communication professional.”
— Phillip Bowen (’98), Director of Marketing, In Touch Ministries, Atlanta

(FRANKLIN SPRINGS, Ga.)—Today as a historic house moves from Emmanuel College’s campus to make room for a new 100-bed residence hall, it serves as a mile marker of advancement and growth in enrollment.
After weeks of preparation and anticipation, the actual move from the home site to US Highway 29 took approximately five minutes.
“The process took a while, but it is a great relief that the move was smooth and uneventful,” says Director of Campus Operations Ron McCullar.
