A world of audio/visual (A/V) technology and communications professionals—including producers and directors, print and electronic journalists, website designers, video game programmers, and multimedia artists—make it all possible. If you have a calling to be creative, yearn to express yourself, or love using new technologies, then Arts, A/V Technology, and Communications may be the right career pathway for you.
