Communication Arts and Sciences Building

Home to world-class programs and a one-of-a-kind learning atmosphere

The Communication Arts and Sciences Building, home to the College of Communication Arts and Sciences, is known for its one-of-a-kind learning atmosphere and innovative classroom spaces. Numerous labs and centers throughout the building and campus focus on journalism, social media, game development and design, virtual/augmented reality, and communicative sciences. These facilities are available to both graduate and undergraduate students and include the Games for Entertainment and Learning (GEL) Lab and Immersive Media Lab, Spartan Newsroom, PLAY video game showcase, WKAR studios, iOS lab and more. The building offers countless opportunities for students to get real-world experience right on campus, build professional skills and collaborate with each other.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of all of the opportunities available to them, including experiential learning, career education, student advising and alumni-student networking. Undergraduate research, internships and employment at WKAR Studios and Focal Point (a student-produced newscast for journalism students) are some of the many opportunities available to students interested in studying communication arts and sciences.

Students interested in studying education or public services may select Communicative Sciences and Disorders as an undergraduate degree within the college (a master’s and doctoral program are also available). Communicative Sciences and Disorders students are trained to understand both normal and disordered aspects of speech, language, healing and swallowing. Students will also be equipped with skills for diagnosing and treating communication disorders.
