Center for Art and Media


The Center for Art and Media at Goucher College offers a unique and innovative mix of courses covering media studies, fine arts and journalism. Students are taught production techniques under the guidance of practicing professionals. The Center is committed to using these tools as a base of critical inquiry, informed by an ethically conscious liberal arts education. Courses examine how communication industries and visual artists work in both contemporary and historical societies, circulating ideas, stories, and images that express and define human experience and imagination. By understanding the production, distribution, and audience reception of culture, students gain insight into individual creativity and social practices.  Through the processes of research, production, reflection and critique, students learn to engage meaningfully in our increasingly visual world.
