What to do with an Art degree?

A growing public acknowledgment of the value of the arts in commerce and society have profoundly transformed the entrepreneurial and employment opportunities for studio artists and graphic designers.

The faculty encourages students to plan their career and to make participation in undergraduate research and internship programs part of their academic learning. Many of our students also complete graduate studies before entering the field.

Here are just a few examples of the diverse career options available to Visual Arts students.
