Committed to an interdisciplinary curriculum with experiential learning opportunities that prepare our graduates for gainful and meaningful employment, the College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts (CARTA) has become a national model for arts and design education. Our fully-accredited academic departments take advantage of our South Florida location by engaging in innovative problem-solving initiatives with our local and global communities.

Unique in composition and mission, CARTA has offered distinguished degree programs in Architecture, Interior Architecture, Landscape Architecture + Environmental and Urban Design, Art + Art History, Communication, Music, and Theatre for over ten years. As of 2016, we are excited to announce that FIU’s prestigious School of Journalism and Mass Communication has integrated with CARTA, creating additional degree programs in Communication and Journalism + Media through our newly formed School of Communication + Journalism (SCJ). This new strategic partnership combines the power of the arts and communication to foster interdisciplinary research and degree offerings that better prepare students for the 21st century’s information, technology, and innovation economies.
