Assumption University, the first international university in Thailand, established the Faculty of Communication Arts in 1992 with Acharn Sompol Supakkanok as the first dean.
Originally, there were two programs, Advertising and Visual Communication Arts. In 2004, three more programs, New Media Communication, Performance Communication, and Public Relations, were added.
The Faculty was formerly housed in Queen’s Tower, 7th Floor, Huamak Campus. It moved to the main Suvarnabhumi Campus in 2008 with its own two buildings, the “Albert Laurence School of Communication Arts Building” and the “Studio of Communication Arts Building”.
The full name of the Faculty was changed to the “Albert Laurence School of Communication Arts” in 2009, reflecting the name of the Rector of Assumption University, Rev. Bro. Bancha Saenghiran (Albert Laurence), as the person who leads and provides direction for the School. In 2012, the school began offering two new programs, Computer Generated Imagery and Visual Communication Design.
