Supercharge your education with opportunities in student organizations
Student organizations can play a critical role in every student’s success. They go beyond formal curriculum to provide students with opportunities to gain relevant experience, develop résumé points, build portfolio items, and socialize with like-minded peers. Anyone enrolled at MTSU can join any official student organization regardless of major or grade. The most successful students often use student organizations to get a jump on their careers. Besides that – it can also be a lot of fun!
There is a student organization for every major in the Department of Media Arts. Find something for yourself in the list below.
