• Arts, A/V Technology & Communications

    As Shakespeare observed, All the World’s a stage. Whether it’s music, painting, drawing, sculpting, writing, dancing, or any other genre, artistic expression is all around us—on TV and radio, at the movies, in art galleries, on the Web, in our MP3 players. People who work in the Arts, A/V Technology & Communications cluster may entertain and inform through an ever-growing array of new media forms such as cell phone ringtones, text messaging, and shared online videos. A world of audio-visual (A/V) technology and communications professionals—including producers and directors, print and electronic journalists, website designers, video game programmers, and multimedia artists—makes it all possible. If you have a calling to be creative, yearn to express yourself, or love using new technologies, then Arts, A/V Technology & Communications may be the right career cluster for you.
