Arts, Communications & Languages

“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” —Maya Angelou


We believe the next generation of leaders need imagination, creativity, and courage to constructively engage the challenges and opportunities of our age. The Arts, Communications & Languages career interest community is designed to assist students interested in performing and fine arts, design, arts administration, creative writing, publishing, journalism, music, film, television, media, communications, marketing, advertising, public relations, and foreign languages. 

You will find industry resources and trends, career advice, job, internship and networking opportunities, workshops, events, and mentors to help you embrace and explore your creativity.

Learn more about your interests and talents, connect to real world opportunities, and let us help you build a strong community and exciting career!
