The Art Institutes Offer New Bachelor's Degree Programs in Creative Fields

Programs are a response to the growing need for creative professionals in the marketplace

PITTSBURGH, June 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Art Institutes system of schools announces four new programs designed to prepare students to enter the growing creative marketplace. The programs are offered in addition to the system of schools' existing programs in the areas of design, media arts, and culinary.

New programs are the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Instructional Technology & Design, Bachelor of Science (BS) in Marketing & Entertainment Management, Bachelor of Science (BS) or Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Professional Writing for Creative Arts, and Bachelor of Science (BS) in Software Development for Creative Technologies. Each was designed by industry professionals in conjunction with instructors at The Art Institutes schools. The programs teach the skills needed for students to transition into entry-level positions in creative fields.

The Instructional Technology & Design program was created for students who are interested in designing engaging and relevant education experiences and want to keep up with the advancing instructional technology field.

The Marketing & Entertainment Management program can prepare students to move into an industry that includes arts organizations, multi-media providers, corporate events, trade shows, and executive retreats.

The Professional Writing for Creative Arts program can train students in the conceptual, analytical, and technical skills needed to create engaging content that resonates with a target audience across multiple media platforms and purposes, ranging from web and social content to business and technical communication to advertising and scriptwriting.

The Software Development for Creative Technologies program introduces students to the software programs and applications utilized for multimedia, creative, and entertainment purposes.

"Our new programs are designed to prepare students to make an impact in the creative marketplace," said Dr. Donna Gray, chief academic officer and vice president of academic affairs, for The Art Institutes. "We work closely with industry professionals to better understand the skill sets they're looking for in their employees."

Classes begin October 2016. Programs vary by location and not every Art Institute location offers the new programs. Visit artinstitutes.edu for a list of programs offered at each Art Institute location.
