We are the College of Communication and the Arts.
We are focused on creating a vibrant and active learning experience for our students. We embrace the exploration of tradition and innovation.
Contact us to schedule a visit to our studios, theatres, labs and departments. We have recently installed a new state of the art switcher in the Rocket Hall broadcasting studio and built a large-format print center in the Center for the Visual Arts.
What's Happening, Fall 2014
The Adding Machine, a play about an accountant who murders his boss after learning he’ll be replaced at work by an adding machine, was recently produced by the Department of Theatre and Film. The play was written by Elmer Rice and directed by Irene Alby. UT:10 offers a closer look at this beautiful production.
Five CoCA students received scholarships to the uHeart Digital Media Conference in October. We asked them to share a bit about what they heard and learned about the future of digital media.
The UT Opera Ensemble performed downtown at the Blarney Event Center last month. The show, set in a bar, was called “American Triptych: A Salute to American Opera” and was directed by voice professor Denise Ritter-Bernardini.
The annual Banned Books Vigil at Carlson Library was successful and well-attended. The event, planned by Communication Professor Paulette Kilmer, involved a slate of guest speakers and giveaways of frequently-banned books.
In a lead-up to the conference of the International Visual Literacy Association held at the Toledo Museum of Art, two alums of the UT Department of Art spoke in an event at TMA. Brian Carpenter and Roy Schneider presented thoughts that were mediated by Department of Art Chair Barbara Miner.
Toledo City Councilman Tom Waniewski was honored by CoCA this year during UT's Homecoming Weekend. Waniewski, an alumnus of the Department of Communication, received the College's Outstanding Alumnus Award in recognition of his contributions to broadcasting and government. He spoke with students about his experiences; UT:10 has more about Waniewski.
Students in the College of Communication and the Arts can now pursue one of several cross-disciplinary minors that incorporates strengths of faculty and curriculum across the college's departments. They include: Visual Effects and Animation; Documentary Theory and Production; Sound Production and Design; and Digital Arts and Visual Communication.
Experiential Learning Partners
Seelio Online Portfolio
Students in the College of Communication and the Arts capture their class projects and extracurricular endeavors with Seelio, an online portfolio program. Seelio allows for a visual and narrative presentation of one's experience. Check out some of the inspiring portfolios of students in Communication and the Arts. Learn more about Seelio.
Our students also enjoy using Intern in Ohio, an online matching program for students and employers. Their profiles are matched with available internships that fit their interests and skills. Integration of Seelio with the Intern in Ohio program is forthcoming.
