The College of Fine Arts and Communications boasts a wide array of majors and areas of study, and includes six schools and departments. Nearly all of the majors housed in our college are Limited Enrollment Programs (LEP), which means they require an application or audition to declare the major.

Admission is limited to certain times of the year, so pay close attention to the dates and deadlines for your intended area.

Each of the school and department websites includes detailed information on how to apply to their respective majors. Click on the links below to view application information.
