The College of Creative Arts prepares students for global engagement as practitioners, educators, creators, advocates and patrons of the arts. We foster the development of professional skills and intellectual growth necessary for the pursuit of creative and scholarly inquiry by extending artistic traditions, while embracing a culture of innovation and change.

Our cross-disciplinary Emerging Technology in Business + Design (ETBD) department (formerly known as Armstrong Institute for Interactive Media Studies, or AIMS), offers undergraduate and graduate programs that explore technology, design, and business.

The Arts Management & Entrepreneurship Program at Miami University prepares future artists and arts leaders by providing the necessary skills for connecting artistry, arts management, and arts entrepreneurship across disciplines.

The Fashion Program emphasizes creativity and experimentation, while offering students the opportunity to develop a broad set of basic skills in design language, technical skills, and fashion business.
