Communication and Visual Arts Now Two UM-Flint Departments

UM-Flint’s Department of Communication and Visual Arts has undergone a change that will offer more opportunities for faculty, staff, and students.

In summer 2016, the University of Michigan Board of Regents approved dividing the Department of Communication and Visual Arts into two independent departments: the Department of Communication Studies and the Department of Art and Art History.

“We are excited to complete this transition to create two independent and vibrant departments and to see how their curricula and programs develop in the coming years,” said Susan Gano-Phillips, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
