The College of Fine Arts and Communication (COFAC) encourages students to develop their creative and analytical abilities, tailored to their aspirations, by encouraging dialogue, inspiration, passion and beauty. These attributes are fostered through a broad liberal arts education and specialized professional training.

Our six departments—Art + Design, Art History, Art Education, Dance, Electronic Media and Film, Mass Communication and Communication Studies, Music and Theatre Arts—offer a wide range of majors and concentrations. In addition to programs of study for our majors and minors, we also offer all TU students the opportunity to participate in an exciting variety of academic and artistic experiences.
