The Scope of Creative Arts as a Career Choice
The field of creative arts is evolving at a fast pace. Luckily, these days, students (and parents) are more open to non-traditional career paths other than engineering and medical streams. The notion that the creative sector pays less is also getting rejected. The digital boom has indeed aided the concept of the creative economy and its effect on the country's overall economy. The career choices in the creative industry are innumerable and choosing creative arts as your area of study can be a stimulating experience.
We are living in a digital-era where content is co-created and disseminated by the users/customers. The demand for skilled and qualified creative professionals is on an all-time high. I was looking for a course which abides by the international standards, offers world-class amenities and will equip me with the related skills to capitalize on the digital trends. When I was actively searching for undergraduate courses in Creative Arts in Kerala, ISCA (International School of Creative Arts) topped my list in almost all the categories like the facilities, faculty, the scope of the curriculum and placement options.
