Why GMS?

Communications Arts is a growing field that promises many job opportunities. Our graduates are well-rounded and ready to start college or careers prepared for the demands of the 21st Century.

But don't just take our word for it. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists Media and Communication Occupations as one of the fastest-growing fields in the next decade:

Employment in media and communication occupations is projected to grow 14 percent from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations, and will result in about 151,500 new jobs. Demand for media and communication occupations is expected to arise from the need to create, edit, translate, and disseminate information through a variety of different platforms.

The median annual wage for media and communication workers (such as announcers, interpreters and translators, and technical writers) was $61,310 in May 2020, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $41,950.

Media and communication equipment workers (such as broadcast and sound engineering technicians, film and video editors, and photographers) had a median annual wage of $50,870 in May 2020, higher than the median annual wage for all occupations in the economy.
