Raise the curtain on a great career.

It's hard to decide, since all these jobs are great…and they're just a few of the many amazing careers you can find in Arts, Media and Entertainment, a pathway for anyone who loves the energy of creativity and the excitement of performance.

The Arts, Media and Entertainment pathway actually splits into three different scenes, each leading to an incredible variety of careers: Media and Design Arts (artists, broadcasters, journalists), Performing Arts (actors, dancers, musicians) and Production and Managerial Arts (producers, managers, engineers).

Choose this path and you'll challenge both your creative and your technical side. You'll study classic art forms one minute, then work with cutting-edge technology the next. You'll sharpen intangible skills like flexibility, problem-solving and interpersonal communication. And you'll gain invaluable experience in teamwork, decision-making and creative thinking—skills you'll need to thrive in today's media-rich environment.
