ABOUT FCAT

The Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology

Thinkers. Makers. Doers.

FCAT encompasses 5 Schools and Programs dedicated to the practice and scholarly study of the most compelling aspects of communication, art and technology today. Its vibrancy lies in the sheer range and diversity of its departments, but its unity lies in each of these departments’ dedication to rigorous and imaginative intellectual inquiry, the highest standards of academic rigour, and the continuous expansion of knowledge through research, teaching, and creative production. FCAT prepares its students for their futures: students learn to think critically and creatively; they learn to communicate clearly and persuasively; and they learn to innovate, create, and collaborate in their chosen fields of practice. FCAT stands at the intersection of culture and technology, precisely where some of the most important and exciting developments are to be found.
