In the division of Culture, Arts and Communication (CAC), our coursework is interdisciplinary and rooted in culture, examining both historical contexts and the changing world we live in. This module will introduce students to the broad range of key concepts, debates and skills necessary to undertake further study in Media and Communication. The module traces the history of community arts and provides practical exercises on workshop skills to develop an understanding of the role of music technology in the local community.
Theatre and communication arts students have opportunities to study abroad with our many international partners, including Mary Immaculate College in Limerick, Ireland, and Universita Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Rome. By taking part in activities with all of these organisations you can develop your skills and apply the knowledge you have learned on your course in a practical way.
Example career fields that combine the two areas are public relations and marketing, TV and radio broadcasting, graphic design and publishing. Students complete specified units of study in media and communications over four years and a major from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Table A subject areas which can be completed as a two or three year defined sequence of study.
The students in my class are in the Academy of Visual Arts at the High School of Graphic Communication Arts on West 49th Street in New York City. Students will receive the best experience to obtain competencies and will learn useful employability skills required for entry-level graphic communications positions.
Learners will deepen their understanding of themselves, their interests, values , skills and abilities and integrate these ideas to advance their career, education and life choices. Students leave this program with an understanding of cultural institutions and their place in society as well as an appreciation of the socio-cultural implications of the arts and/or languages.
