Message from the Dean, Dr. Kellori Dower
Connectivity, passion and excellence are the hallmark of the Fine and Performing Arts Division. Our eight departments, which are Art/Photography, Communications and Media Studies, Communication Studies, Dance, Music, Nealley Library, Television/Video, and Theatre Arts, create opportunities to lead every student toward their desired goal. Our faculty is second-to-none in each discipline, many of whom are active artists and professionals in addition to their teaching responsibilities. Our community and students benefit from the experience brought to the instructional programs by award-winning directors and choreographers in dance and theatre; visual artists whose work is shown nationally and internationally; composers of piano and choral contemporary works performed throughout California; and professional broadcast journalists and production specialists in TV/Video.
The el Don newspaper is ranked #1 among college newspapers nationwide. Our mural program has led to community partnerships and student internships at major businesses. Our dynamic communication studies faculty reshapes the student experience of public speaking. SAC Fine and Performing Arts has created a long history of success among our students and partners with area school districts to offer courses right on the high school campuses. We offer career certificates, Associate degrees, as well as Associate degrees for transfer to 4-year universities in our departments. We invite YOU to come and add your energy to our division. Your success is our success.
