The School of Language, Arts and Media (SLAM) was established in 2006 as part of a general academic restructuring undertaken by the University. This course will explore the dynamics of different perspectives on the human and economic resources involved in the production, distribution and support of the arts and cultural products in Canada. In 2013, Salt Lake Community College rolled out the red carpet for its new state-of-the-industry Center for Arts and Media, serving about 9,000 students with 17 programs under one roof as part of the School of Arts and Communication. Cinema Art + Science and Interactive Arts & Media students work alongside a student production team from the Beijing Film Academy for a virtual and interactive documentary project connecting two great world cities: Chicago and Beijing. It is intended to service those students who have a real interest in managing in the arts and cultural sector. It may have taken Ken Walker 17 years to earn his Bachelor of Fine Arts from CU Denver, but he didn’t have to wait that long to become an artist.
The University’s new Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts provides an unparalleled space for creative forces to work and come together in an academic or extracurricular setting. In line with this expansive vision, the School seeks both breadth and diversity in the design of its programmes. Our aim is to equip you with lifelong learning skills that will position you as a leader in the rapidly-evolving communication and media industries and help you remain competitive throughout your career. Attributes gained undertaking humanities-based studies at the School provide graduates with a wide range of internationally recognised career opportunities in research, government, teaching and industry.
SLAM is one of Australia’s most active arts and humanities research centres, in Sydney, nationally, and internationally. Students study the oral, written, technical, analytical and creative skills required for careers in fields such as advertising, public relations, print, broadcast and online journalism, media production and writing for film and television. Implicit in its elevation to School status is an expectation that, in addition to maintaining its time-honoured curriculum, it will develop fresh initiatives from within its new home in the Faculty of Arts, Law and Education. Your student handbook should provide you with information and guidelines on the style your school or program requires you to use. Located at the school’s South City Campus in Salt Lake City, the Center’s emphasis is a strong focus in digital arts.
The Fairleigh Dickinson University School of Art and Media Studies on the Metropolitan campus fosters a unique set of practical and applied skills related to art and communication.

Students also study the global cultural and economic influence of the media industries.
