Arts Careers

Alumni from arts programs across the nation are highly motivated entrepreneurs who can create their own job opportunities. Graduates say that their teachers helped hone specific skills, and more than 75% would attend their schools again. Many are especially happy that their work reflects their personalities and values. And even in our challenging economic times, arts alumni have low student debt, which empowers them to be even greater risk takers and to follow their passions after graduation.
