About CommArts Academic and Student Engagement (CASE)

Welcome! CommArts Academic and Student Engagement, or CASE, is the College of Communication and the Arts’ hub for undergraduate and graduate studies, including co- and extracurricular organizations and activities.

For prospective students, CASE provides the support needed to successfully transition into the College, whether as a  first-year student, undergraduate transfer, returning student, or graduate student.

Rooted in the University’s mission as an academically distinguished Catholic university and in concert with the College’s interdisciplinary mission, CASE delivers personalized support for all students and seeks to increasingly foster student success, student retention, connectivity with internal and external opportunities, and degree completion.

To facilitate these goals, CASE implements a variety of high impact and engaging activities, some of which include academic advising, professional mentorship, curricular monitoring, and experiential learning.  Additionally, CASE further cultivates the College’s commitment to inclusion by establishing connections for students to co- and extracurricular  experiences.

We invite you to further explore our website, including our diverse undergraduate program portfolio of seven majors and 17 minors – plus two accelerated pathway B.A./M.A. programs. Similarly, our graduate studies portfolio features a variety of master's-level programs, professional certificates, and a dual M.A./M.A. program with the School of Diplomacy and International Relations.

Prospective and current students are invited to connect with us to learn more.
