Student Opportunities

In the Gwen Ifill College of Media, Arts, and Humanities, we cultivate a diverse and talented generation of trailblazers who are poised to become leaders in their professions and in their communities. 

Students gathered in the Ifill college common area

Our students are serious and curious — daring to ask questions that have never been asked before. Driven by a desire for justice as well as professional achievement, our students focus on inclusive cultural analysis and interpretation, developing a comprehensive understanding of history, literature, the arts, languages, and communication.
