Thanks for visiting the Minnesota State University Moorhead College of Arts, Media, and Communication website. We offer academic programs and events for the community that showcase the thought and creativity of our students, faculty, and staff.
Our students learn by doing. They work to stage all aspects of our theatre shows, perform in a variety of musical ensembles, showcase their work through art exhibitions, or conduct faculty-mentored research. Last year, more than 38,000 people attended a campus performance or art exhibition by our students and faculty.
Our students learn from quality faculty members who publish research and present creative works that receive strong reviews by their peers. Every year, our faculty create more opportunities to collaborate with students in work that is mutually rewarding. Our students graduate and go on to fulfilling lives, both personally and professionally. They are prepared to write, think critically, and interact with diverse populations. This website is your gateway to the MSUM College of Arts, Media, and Communication. In the arts and humanities, we explore and enrich the human experience.
I welcome the opportunity to talk with you more about the educational experiences we offer. Please contact me via email if you have any questions.
Dr. Tim Borchers, Dean
