Creativity knows no bounds.
When you explore the Creative Arts and Communication Pathway, you join a community of individuals who seek opportunities to express their creative interests through their career or personal life choices. You’ll find a constant stream of events to help you meet students, faculty, and community members engaging in arts-related activities.
While some students may see themselves as future artists, musicians, writers, or actors, many students who consider this pathway will pursue opportunities to apply creative thought in ways you might not expect. In the creative arts, it’s less about what you do than how you do it.
Learn more about the Pathway Leadership Team members for this pathway - key advisors and supporters who inform how we prepare students for success and give them access to the best internships, jobs, and graduate/professional schools.
