The Department of Communication and Studio Arts (CASA) emphasizes creativity and critical thinking in communication and the arts. In state-of-the-art studios and computer laboratories, under the supervision of professors who are nationally and internationally recognized in their fields, students prepare for careers such as studio art, professional writing, graphic design and public relations. Classes are taught by published authors and award-winning artists in ceramics, painting, printmaking, sculpture, graphic design, and photography. The UHCL art faculty includes recipients of multiple Fulbright awards. Art students routinely win awards for their work and are often accepted into MFA programs. Communication students often publish their work in the university’s award-winning newspaper, gain professional experience through more than 100 internships in the Houston-Galveston area, and produce portfolios that demonstrate their mastery of written and visual communication suitable for media and corporate environments. The writing program prepares students to communicate in their disciplines at the upper-division level. Writing program faculty members offer courses in writing for the liberal arts, the human sciences, education, science and the business and technical professions. In addition to critical thinking, these courses emphasize professional writing skills, analysis, research and argumentation.
