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.

Here is what a few students and faculty members have been up to this summer, combining learning with experience:
Associate Professor of Film, Holly Hey put together a video production team this summer. The team handled all phases of video production in collaboration with physicians from UTMC. Their informational and instructive wellness video, "C.A.R.E. A Self Care Treatment Plan for Sodium Consumption" will be distributed to patients.
Professor of Art Tom Lingeman taught a course in Outdoor Sculpture Conservation, in which students cleaned several statues on the grounds of the Lucas County Courthouse. Read more about the Outdoor Sculpture Conservation project.
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.
CoCA students will benefit from the increased resources available from Seelio, the
web-based career preparation portfolio company, as it was recently acquired by PlattForm, which manages college and university marketing and enrollment programs.
Explore some of the great CoCA student portfolios at the college's aggregate page.
