Communication Arts

Good communication is the bridge between confusion and clarity.

The communication arts cover all facets of effective communication; whether that be writing, speaking, researching, illustrating, or more. Catholic Central has a wide array of classes and extra-curricular activities that pertain to communicative arts.

The Shamrock United Network (SUN) is responsible for broadcast news throughout the school. The club covers everything from filming homeroom announcements and creating videos for student activities to livestreaming/commentating athletic events and assemblies. Membership in SUN will teach students all the aspects of news media and broadcast journalism. There are many ways to get involved in SUN even if you do not like to be on camera such as graphic design, running livestream software (OBS), audio commentating events, operating a camera, photography, creating stats for athletics, writing news stories for the website, and more.

SUN covers Catholic Central sporting events and other school events with live-streamed coverage, photography, and commentary. With more than 20 members, the students gain real-world experience in the media arts industry and have the opportunity to find their niche within the vast media landscape. Students also hear from notable guest speakers throughout the year enabling them to build relationships and learn from professionals in the field. The SUN program encourages students to take risks, try new things, and all while supporting them in their endeavors.

The club meets every Wednesday after school. For more information contact the club moderator.

Spectrum Newspaper

Detroit Catholic Central's Spectrum was first published by students in 1936 and has remained an important component of school tradition ever since. Today, Spectrum is published in print four times per year. 

Whether they are assigned to report on school news and sports, to express their opinions in editorials, or to interview subjects and write features, Spectrum writers are encouraged to approach their craft with creativity, nuance, and professionalism. 

Many Spectrum alumni have used their experience to pursue journalism at their respective colleges—including Miami University (OH), Boston University, Michigan State University, and the University of Michigan—and professionally.
