The Gwen Ifill College of Media, Arts, and Humanities

Become a trailblazer

The Gwen Ifill College of Media, Arts, and Humanities cultivates trailblazers and leaders. Here, you'll study the modes of expression through which we record and interpret the human experience. In Gwen Ifill '77's proud image, our students focus on incisive cultural analysis and interpretation — viewing society through the multi-faceted lenses of language, narrative, art, music, film and contemporary media.

You'll hone your creative abilities through real-world projects and on-the-job learning experiences. Our students navigate the visual and literary world in a dynamic and meaningful way, developing a rich understanding of cultures — present and past.

In Gwen Ifill's words, "We can't expect the world to get better by itself." Are you ready to get started?
