Welcome Message from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Arts and Communication at West Liberty University.  The College of Arts and Communication was created in 2010 and is comprised of the Department of Journalism, Communication Studies and Visual Arts and the Department of Music and Theatre.

Dr. William Baronak

The College of Arts and Communication has twenty-five faculty members with many years of experience in their disciplines. It offers some of the most technologically driven degrees and is the main provider of cultural activities on campus. The College is also responsible for a large portion of the University’s community engagement. There are currently more than 275 students enrolled in programs housed in the College of Arts and Communication. The programs within the College have enjoyed growth in student enrollment by more than 20% over the last five years.

From journalism to design to music technology, new methods of communication are transforming every industry and every profession. The College of Arts and Communication provides flexible spaces and programs that will better meet the needs of current and future students.  I encourage you to explore our site and experience the programs and new initiatives we have to offer.  Whether you are a current student, perspective student, or WLU alumnus, there is something here for you.  Please contact me anytime to discuss your future in the College of Arts and Communication at West Liberty University.
