Welcome to Communication Arts

Centered on a rigorous investigation of studio methods and practices, the Communication Arts curriculum additionally explores historical, conceptual, and theoretical concerns critical to the development of a well rounded and informed understanding of image, media, content and context.

With a history richly rooted in drawing, painting, and art theory, the Communication Arts program is effectively tailored to provide students educational opportunities to develop the types of quality skills and meaningful understandings that are relevant and sought after in the expanding universe of communication medias.

It is a curriculum that endeavors to provide a balance between past, present and future: valuing artistic traditions and techniques, while thoughtfully embracing new tools, technologies, opportunities, and outcomes.

Woven throughout the program, the study of Communication Arts is concerned with the powerful and timeless relationship between art and narrative — image and story — which invites each student to embrace, amplify, and build upon their unique views and life experience so that they, in the lifetime beyond university, may add to humanity’s ongoing evolution and unfolding.
