Applied Art and Technology/Communications

Arizona State College opened the School of Technology and Applied Arts in 1961. The structure housed industrial education on the first floor, home economics-including fashion, merchandising, nutrition, and interior design-on the second floor, and fine arts on the third floor.

Throughout its existence, the school included Art, Speech, Drama, and Engineering. The building also accommodated other departments, such as the School of Journalism, College of Design and Technology, and the School of Applied Sciences. The university renamed it the School of Communications in 1984.

In 2004, Communications became part of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. Student services include television outlets, classrooms, computer labs, art and photography studios, The Lumberjack newspaper, and KJACK radio.
