Division of Culture, Arts & Communication (CAC)

Main page content

Culture, Arts and Communication (CAC) embraces five majors: American Studies; Arts, Media and Culture; Communication; Spanish Language and Cultures; and Writing Studies. We are bound by a common interest in human beings and their expressions--from personal to global, and from theory to practice. CAC courses are interdisciplinary and rooted in cultural contexts. Its curricula include creative and technical writing and rhetoric, global and American mass media, art history and studio arts, film studies, literature, Latin American and Spanish language and cultures and American mainstream, ethnic and popular cultures. Courses approach these fields not only in their historical dimensions, but also in the context of the socially and technologically changing world we inhabit. CAC degrees prepare students for careers in television and digital media, publishing and public relations, secondary and higher education, museum work, the arts and many related fields; most important, this university education provides tools for lifelong learning, enrichment and reflection
