| by Carol Best email@example.com
MNU welcomes Aaron Bohn to the faculty in July. Bohn will teach and further develop the new digital communication major in the Department of Business Administration. He comes to the position from Ohio University where he is associate professor & campus program administrator of film and electronic media.
MNU’s digital communications major will enroll its first students this fall. It is designed to prepare students for careers that combine messaging design and delivery in all industries. Graduates in this field work in jobs with responsibilities in content creation and curation, digital marketing, social media management, search engine optimization, and marketing direction. The curriculum for this highly practical major integrates communication theory with skills in demand today including HTML coding, graphic design, web design, animation and Google Analytics.
Bohn’s experience is extremely fitting for this position. His electronic media experience and education are extensive. He earned a Master of Arts in Digital Storytelling (2015) and a Master of Fine Arts in Screenwriting (2019) at Asbury University. While earning his degrees, he served as adjunct faculty in film directing. Previously Bohn was associate professor of film and media communications at Northern Virginia Community College.
Bohn has strong communication and media experience including freelance screenwriter, co-writer and co-director, working with the writer Dean Batali (That 70s Show, Buffy) and co-directing with Anson Williams (Happy Days, Secret Life of the American Teenager). Bohn also has been a production assistant, a radio DJ and a promotions assistant. He has live-event broadcast stage management experience with University of Kentucky athletics and has directed film camp for students at Asbury University.
Bohn is married to Christina Bohn who will be assistant professor of biblical studies at MNU in July. She is a PhD candidate from University of Manchester and holds an MA from Ashbury Theological Seminary and a BA from Mount Vernon Nazarene University.
