College of Arts & Media

Dean's Welcome

The College of Arts & Media was established in July 1998 by the University of Colorado Board of Regents as the first and only comprehensive undergraduate arts and media college in Colorado. College of Arts & Media programs emphasize a broad approach to arts and media education with strong links to technology and the marketplace. This curricular focus on the intersections of art, technology and commerce reflects the vibrancy and pace of the urban Denver environment. We are proud of the progress and accomplishments of the college and its students in the seven exciting years since its formation. These many accomplishments can be attributed to the implementation of three strategic initiatives throughout the courses, faculty, and programs of the college:

  • academic and artistic excellence

  • signature degree programs in art, technology, and commerce

  • innovative and experiential learning through partnerships

Our academic programs are unique in that we are the only college in the in the Rocky Mountain region offering four-year university-level B.F.A., B.A., and B.S. degree programs with emphases in such areas as film/video production, multimedia, music business and music technology. Our newest degree programs include a B.F.A. in Theatre, Film and Television and a groundbreaking Master of Science in Recording Arts.

Creative expression is fundamental to all academic programs in the college, as is the development of technical skills tempered by passionate artistic rigor. Whether you are pursuing dedicated study of the visual arts, music or theatre, or the application of cutting-edge technologies to your creative expression, the college, its faculty and staff are committed to providing a challenging, real-world education for the next millennium.
