The Arts and Humanities emphasis is a great option for those students with an artistic side or who have cultural interests such as theatre, music, film, and museums.
James Whistler said, “An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.” Through this emphasis area students will be introduced to a broad range of topics related to their artistic interests, while also developing the vision needed to be a leader in the workforce. This emphasis is a good option for students that want to pursue careers such as: Museum Curator, Archives Specialist, Production Manager, Stage Manager, Artistic Coordinator, Tour Guide, and Exhibit Coordinator, among others.
