A college by any other name is still a college.

After more than a semester of deliberation, Loyola announced that the former College of Music and Fine Arts has been renamed the College of Music and Media, according to an email from President Tania Tetlow and Kern Maass, dean of the College of Music and Media, on Feb. 20.

The college is home to one-third of the university’s undergraduate population and all three of the schools in the college have also been renamed.

The School of Communication and Design now includes the university’s communication, film, design and art programs, the School of Music Industry has been established in order to represent, “our historic strengths while looking towards the economic future,” according to Tetlow, and the School of Music and Theatre Arts will now include the university’s theatre and music programs.
