The Department of Art, Communications and Theatre
Dr. Manuel Flores, Department Chair
The Department of Communications and Theatre Arts is merging with the Department of Art. The new name of the department will be The Department of Art, Communications and Theatre (ACT) starting Sept. 1, 2011.
The merger came about for two reasons: (1) budgetary cutbacks at the state level necessitated consolidation of several departments at Texas A&M-Kingsville and (2) the link between Communications and Theatre Arts and the Art department is a natural fit as communications continues to evolve because of technology. The integration of visual arts and communication continues to occur in both fields. Both areas of study form a mutually beneficial partnership, strengthening the type of well-rounded education we are able to provide our students, equipping them with a diverse skill set.
