Welcome to the Department of Art, Communication and Theatre Website

Exciting times are ahead for us as we launch our new department. We have an excited, innovative faculty who encourage student growth in the expanding fields of Art Education, Broadcasting, Graphic Design, Journalism, Two and Three Dimensional Art and  Communication Studies.

 Within the area of Art students are able to choose between three exciting degrees.

Communication and Theatre students are directed within the Communication Arts degree to an emphasis in one of three areas:  Theatre, Mass Communication or Speech Communication. 

Whether you choose to be involved on or off stage, work on the staff of our award winning newspaper, sharpen your overall communication skills, teach elementary or secondary art, major in graphic design or indulge your other artistic talents, SWOSU has a place for you. With small faculty to student ratios and hands on experience, our classes will help equip you for numerous jobs in the fine arts field (see What Can You Do With A Communication Arts Degree? (and link to what you can do with graphic design or a fine arts degree).

Any of the faculty would love to visit with you. Be sure to check out the scholarships available for incoming freshman and transfer students. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to e-mail me at robin.jones@swosu.edu. I look forward to getting to know you.
