Center for Art & 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.
