Arts & Humanities

Arts & Humanities

In an addition to working directly as a performer or in the fine arts, creative types have a wide range of career options that combine their talent with workforce demand. For instance, Indeed reports that a junior graphic designer in the D.C. area can expect to an average salary of $52,000, and the National Institute for Social Media predicts that demand for social media specialists (writers and content creators) will increase by 19% over the next decade.

The Arts & Humanities Academy currently offers the following programs:

  • Commercial Photography I and II
  • Multimedia and Web Technology
  • Advanced Multimedia and Web Technology

Additionally, students and businesses are encouraged to contact us about creating customized learning opportunities in this sector, such as internships, job shadowing and career days where creative professionals discuss their career path. There are many ways CTE can match students eager to learn with businesses ready to share their knowledge and foster the skills needed for workplace success. Students thinking about striking out as a freelancer may also want to explore our Business & Finance Academy.
