Sometimes facts lie right in front of us like puzzle pieces waiting to be put together. The National Center for Media Forensics at CU Denver provides a world class program dedicated to the scientific study and research of the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of audio, video, and image evidence obtained in the course of investigations and litigation.
In the Department of Visual Arts, the city becomes our canvas, industry leaders become professors and a passion becomes a profession. We do our best work designing in a digital lab or putting paint to canvas in a studio. Students have access to state-of-the art digital labs, sculpture studios, industrial equipment and darkrooms. That’s how we unite the ability to create with the means to succeed.
