Welcome to the College of Fine Arts and Communication.
Our college traces its history back to the beginning of East Carolina University. In 1909, there were Art and Music Educators in the first faculty class employed by this institution. Theatre and oral communication were also regular offerings. We are proud to be part of the origin of this university and take great pride in the fact that our college has grown to be the largest and most comprehensive such unit in the state of North Carolina.
You have come to the right place. Students who visit our campus and meet our faculty usually enroll here. Linked to this homepage are the websites of our four participating schools and the outstanding S. Rudolph Alexander Performing Arts Series site. Peruse these venues to discover the programs and faculty that produced such greats as Scott Avett, Brent Funderburk, Trevor Van Meter, Emily Procter, Carl Davis, John Nichols, Sandra Bullock, Howell Binkley, Beth Grant, Conwell Worthington, Mark Ford, Jeanne Piland and Claude Baker.
Finally, I would be remiss if I did not mention the dynamic interaction at work within the College of Fine Arts and Communication. Regardless of your major, you will experience and become familiar with the other cultural and academic entities of our college. One such fine example is the College of Fine Arts and Communication study abroad program in Certaldo, Italy. Living in this small Tuscan community with close proximity to Florence, our students can study a variety of required and elective courses while gaining a broader understanding of the Italian lifestyle and global community. In 2011, this program will grow from a summer offering to a year round curriculum to better serve the students of our fine college.
