School of Communications Media and the Arts

A Message from Dean Fritz Messere

On behalf of myself and Associate Dean Pretzat, welcome to the School of Communication, Media and the Arts. We are a school that values creative expression, civic engagement and collaborative learning. Our goal is to make learning exciting and rewarding. Our faculty provide students with opportunities to explore the cultural values that provide a basis for understanding the human experience. By looking at our 2013-2014 Annual Report you can readily see this in the many classroom activities that occur each year.

We also encourage our students to explore their interests outside the classroom. As as result you will see our students are involved in many activities in and around the campus and the Oswego community. 

The School of Communication, Media and the Arts is comprised of extraordinary teachers, accomplished scholars and wonderfully creative artists. Many of our faculty give of their time and talent to make Oswego a better community. With this Annual Report , you will get a sense of their many accomplishments.

There is a real joy to learning at Oswego, and I believe that the School of Communication, Media and the Arts is at the forefront of the new wave of fine arts schools.
