Our Mission 

To create courageous, engaged producers of art, design, music, theater, and communication through transformational learning, creative activities, research and innovation while illuminating the human experience. 

Our Vision

To be the most authentic, culturally and socially recognized destination for the arts, design and communication. 

ADVISING

The School of Arts and Communication (SAC) is the academic home for students interested in the fields of Art, Graphic Design, Music, Digital Communication Arts, Speech Communication, and Theatre Arts.

The SAC advising team provides academic advising assistance that supports students’ educational and career goals. Advising is a collaborative relationship between the student and their advisor. The advisor for each area will work with students to help clarify goals and assist students in evaluating degree progress. Ultimately, students are responsible for making decisions, setting individual goals, and meeting identified requirements for their degree.

Yes, you can graduate in 4 years...guaranteed.  

And we're here to help you. Our graduates go on to successful careers in music, art, media, design and more. Your path is wide open. The College of Liberal Arts is the only college at Oregon State that guarantees you can graduate in four years.

That means if you meet all of your 4-Year Guarantee obligations and still have unfulfilled requirements at the end of four years, we'll cover in-state tuition for the courses you need to graduate. 

CREATIVE VENTURE
