Mission of the College

Grounded in and sustained by a significant commitment to an excellent liberal education, the College of Communication and Fine Arts aims to promote the Mission of Loyola Marymount University in the following ways:

foster the encouragement of learning in all of our academic programs and endeavors;

contribute in a distinctive way to the education of the whole person;

create in our own community and in the larger community beyond LMU the individual and collective resources and orientations that will allow us to create a more compassionate and just world.

The College of Communication and Fine Arts creates an environment conducive to understanding the complex phenomena of art and art making as well as human communication in all it diverse forms. Driven by a passionate commitment to study, understand, and experience human creative expression requires that we assist students and our various publics in adopting a critical and discerning orientation to human artistic and communicative expression. We develop both the capacity for human artistic expression and the capacity for other forms of communication as life-enhancing opportunities to promote the common good and contribute to the full development of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and those we serve beyond LMU.

Our undergraduate programs in Art and Art History, Communication Studies, Dance, Music, and Theatre Arts and our graduate program in Marital and Family Therapy (grounded in clinical art therapy) foster deep inquiry into the processes and artifacts of human expression and their capacity to shape life’s experiences, meanings, and expectations. We are intrigued by the ways in which art and communication reveal human interiority in all its mysterious and complex diversity. Ultimately, our shared objective is to create and sustain a learning community composed of individuals, each more fully alive, more capable of experiencing life in all its complexity, in order to assist all to live more meaningful and productive lives. Our educational programs and personal interactions with students motivate them to continue learning throughout their lives. Our courses and programs are embedded in a learning community characterized by close contact between faculty, staff, and students that encourages students and their mentors to realize our individual and collective potential to make meaningful contributions to a world in need of our most discerning intelligence and our most creative and compassionate responses. In order to respond most effectively to a challenging and diverse world, the College develops its curricular and program initiatives to promote specific student learning outcomes, developing in them the capacity to make informed, capable, and compassionate contributions through their professional lives and their personal relationships.
