Through interdisciplinary collaborations, the College of Arts, Media and Design (CAMD) drives creative thinking, action, and leadership in communication, digital storytelling, media, design, and the arts. Our core disciplines of architecture, art and design, communication studies, journalism, music and theatre encourage students and faculty to explore opportunities that occur at their intersection.

These disciplines partner with each other, across the university, and with the local and global communities around them to link different fields together in unique and meaningful ways. With this new way of interdisciplinary thinking, through both research and real-world applications, our students and faculty seek to identify innovative solutions to today’s complex challenges as we prepare tomorrow’s idea-generators and thought leaders.

Your investment in CAMD will: 

Foster Engagement and Collaboration. Our students and faculty are showcasing interdisciplinary productions that combine the power of theatre, music, and art; developing, with seed funding, innovative visual interpretations of big data; and creating games and experiences that raise social awareness and make inroads against global problems, from poverty to climate change. From collaborating with the U.S. Army Research Office on how to improve cybersecurity and crisis intervention teams to understanding immigration trends in the U.S. through data visualization, to why Twitter hashtags have become an important platform for social change, some of these ongoing interdisciplinary collaborations may even impact you.

Ignite World-Class Scholarship. Through donor-supported scholarships, co-op and other experiential learning programs, and fellowships, the College of Arts, Media and Design is attracting exceptional undergraduate and graduate students from around the world. To meet the needs of these talented students, and to keep them challenged and engaged, we are also recruiting visionary academic leaders through professorships, chairs, early-faculty development support, and innovation funds. We have seen the incredible impact that successful partnerships between students and faculty can have on the Northeastern community and beyond; your support helps us continue to attract the talented individuals that make this impressive teamwork possible.

Reimagine Education. CAMD is meeting the demands of today’s media-rich, fast-moving, global societies with new degree programs, such as master’s degrees in experience design, sustainable urban environments, media advocacy, or in information design and visualization. We are refining teaching and learning technologies; expanding access to hybrid education, online and onsite; and creating spaces that spark innovation, from a cutting-edge television studio to an interdisciplinary sculpture park that incorporates drawings, prints, writings, and video. As these academic opportunities evolve and grow, so does our network of relevant co-op employers, organizational partners, and involvement in the community.
