Fundamentals for Success

Student Experience


Student Experience

We showcase student creativity and talent through a variety of student-run media, musical performances, theater productions, art exhibitions, and more. We promote cultural awareness and diversity for students and community members through local, regional, and global collaborations and interchange. 




Studio facilities, performance and production facilities, exhibition facilities, a student-managed newspaper, a student-managed television station, and a student-managed radio station complement the school’s academic programs.

Involvement Opportunities



Student and community life is enriched through a wide variety of events, guest lectures, and presentation of visual and performing works by students, faculty, and guests throughout the academic year. Service-learning projects, cooperative education projects, and internship opportunities also give students experience and practice.




We provide abundant avenues for expression and exploration through research opportunities and a robust and diverse performance environment. The school’s wide variety of communications, language and literature, journalism, and theater, art, and music classes form the core of students’ liberal arts experience at Wayne State.

"The instructor saw something special in my speaking abilities and took the time to advise me, which helped me feel very guided. The support in the Communication Arts Department is incredible, and you have a personal connection with every professor. It’s like a home – you’re a person, not a number."
