The mission of the College of Arts and Communication is to cultivate and inspire creativity, expression, inquiry and integrity through embodied education in the fine performing and communicative arts and professions. We offer rigorous programs in music, theatre, dance, and the visual arts; internships, pre-professional opportunities in journalism, advertising, and applied communication, and innovative interdisciplinary studies.
