“Whoever tells the best story shapes the culture.” Erwin Raphael McManus

“It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” W. L. Watkinson

You’ve most likely experienced that we live in a world where media is ubiquitous, where stories are told and consumed through multi-screens, and where entertainment and information media are one of the most influential forces. The internet and social media have transformed the marketplace and as a result, there are career opportunities for digital transmedia storytellers and producers in all fields of the marketplace.

At Esperanza College of Eastern University, we believe that God is the master storyteller and that He created us as storytellers. Therefore we seek to prepare you to become a competent, creative, strategic, skilled, and ethical communicator who integrates our commitment to faith, reason, excellence, justice, and integrity into each communication act, production, and performance. Stories that are infused with faith, hope, and love are engaging and transform lives and have a positive influence in our communities. These stories can ameliorate the social injustice that communication choices can create, perpetuate, and conceal.
