Creativity never goes out of style.

Neither does intelligence, and at the College of Communication and Fine Arts, you'll be surrounded by both. With the city of Memphis as a backdrop, we are educating tomorrow's creative professionals. Music, theatre, art, dance, architecture, and communication arts are more alive in Memphis than in some cities double our size. To come study here, is to light a creative fire that will burn long and hard—equipping you and your classmates to become leaders in creative industries.

There's magic in being around creative people.

In both expected and unexpected ways, you will interact with other big idea people in both real-world and academic settings. Here, there is a genuine spirit of cooperation in a down-to-earth environment that gives you the freedom to be you. Faculty members who are gifted beyond belief in the humanities; social sciences; fine and performing arts; architecture; and design and communication arts and sciences will inspire you. We are driven to help you create. Be bold. Be different. To stretch your thinking and yourself. To push beyond. That's what Memphis does.
