ARTS, MEDIA, AND ENTERTAINMENT

Arts, Media, and Entertainment is a California Department of Education industry sector program that requires both independent work and interdependent management skills for career success. New technologies are constantly reshaping the boundaries and skill sets of many arts career pathways. Consequently, core arts-sector occupations demand constantly varying combinations of artistic imagination, metaphoric representation, symbolic connections, and technical skills.
