Communications Major  
Where can you shoot a cutting edge documentary, create an advertising campaign from the ground up, write film and television screenplays, and anything else that has to deal with the creative side of the communications field? Well, the Communications Major in the School of Media and Communications (CMAC) at UArts gives you the opportunity to let your imagination run wild. Students pick two concentrations from a list that includes screenwriting,advertising,professional writing, documentary video...and other areas of study in the communications field. I came to UArts as a transfer student from a liberal arts college with a lackluster communications department. The Communications program at UArts exposed me to different career choices that I thought about, but now I actually want to persue. I'm combing my love for marketing and advertising with screenwriting. Where else can you do that?

Thanks for sharing!
Can you tell potential students what made you come to UArts in particular? Did you have any other choices?

I knew that UArts had a specific program; I didn't need to take classes like math and science like I would have at my old school. I knew I was going to be able to focus on EXACTLY what I wanted to do. I looked at NYU and a few other larger schools, but I knew I wanted to stay in Philly and I knew I wanted a program that was strictly dealing with communications studies.

Looks like you came to the right place.

UArts is unique in that they have you focused and doing work pertaining to your major as early as day one.

Unlike other colleges and universities, UArts has students studying conservatory-style -- basically, your major is what's most important to you getting your degree.

Good luck in your endeavors!
