Overview

Creative industries are a major driver of global growth. Success in this rewarding arena requires mastery of vital advocacy and visibility tools, so creative works can “break through the clutter” to reach intended audiences.

Similar to a communications major, students in our Creative Industries degree program learn how historical and technological changes drive demand for new culture, and dissect how innovators build content, platforms or services for market success. Our courses immerse you in the specialized techniques creative industries need in film, music, mobile gaming, television, advertising, user interface design, packaging, promotion, information architecture, and sports or entertainment public relations. This highly interactive communications degree offers flexibility and customization — a hallmark of all successful creative industries. A variety of offerings and open elective slots help you tailor your academic experience to your interests and your future.

Prospects in the creative industries are strong and diverse.

Emerging technology is driving the expansion of creative content for smartphones, social media, mobile games, digital entertainment, and innovations in audio-visual entertainment and content distribution, exhibition and promotion. The Creative Industries major prepares you for careers in:

  • Social Media Strategy
  • Sports PR
  • Entertainment PR
  • Digital Publishing
  • Promo Production
  • Social TV
  • Interactive Multimedia
  • Music Industry Promotion
  • Entertainment News Media
