ACM Program Advisor: M. Hussain, Email:

The Department of Arts, Culture and Media (ACM) houses nine distinct disciplines: Art History and Visual Culture, Arts Management, Curatorial Studies, Journalism, Media Studies, New Media Studies, Music and Culture, Studio Art, and Theatre and Performance Studies. Faculty research and practice across a wide range of fields, and students benefit from specialized arts facilities such as the Leigha Lee Browne Theatre and the Doris McCarthy Gallery. ACM also hosts an array of special events and cultural programming through the year, and students are invited to join our departmental students’ association, ACMSA.

ACMB01H3 is designed for students enrolled in programs offered by the Department of Arts, Culture and Media. The course focuses on the development of critical reading, thinking and writing skills necessary for research and inquiry in the Humanities. All ACM students are encouraged to take ACMB02H3.
