Faculty of Communication

The Faculty of Communication provides expert pedagogy and a nurturing environment that enables world-class creative practice and academic research in the field of multimedia communication and visual communication design. The enormous creative potential of digital media forms like virtual reality, and the synesthetic and performative turns in art, promise transformative new horizons for practitioners and fertile ground for philosophers. The departments of Digital Media and Visual Communication Design offer students, artists and researchers with an exciting and supportive environment in which to explore, both creatively and philosophically, how the digital revolution has altered not only our modes and aesthetics of communication, transforming both commerce and art, but also our modes of experiencing and expressing our humanity.

Our main focus is our students who we aim to equip with knowledge, transferrable skills and competencies relevant to the field of communication. In the Faculty of Communication, we embrace both theory and practice and this is reflected in our art-centered inter disciplinary curriculum. One of our main objectives is to support both our staff and students to reach their full potential. In order to achieve this goal, we offer a vast array of training and professional development opportunities aligned with our commitment to lifelong learning. ⁣

As a recently established Faculty, the Faculty of Communication at ARUCAD aims to become the epicenter of communication education in our region. We have Visual Communication Design and Digital Media Departments. Both departments’ academic programs are designed to provide opportunities for students to understand the globalized and digitized world, embrace critical thinking, value innovative and creative ideas, and turn these creative ideas into action.⁣
