Worried that a degree in the Arts will mean a future as a "starving artist?" Here are some reassuring findings from the 2014 Report of the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project, which surveyed recent college graduates in the Arts from a wide variety of institutions across the U.S.: "First, our arts institutions are doing an exemplary job providing students with unparalleled training in art techniques while also encouraging experimentation, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving... Second, recent arts alumni are utilizing internship programs to develop professional skills and social capital they find helpful in getting a job and being successful at it... Arts graduates are among the happiest professionals in the US. Only a small percentage of our survey respondents reported being “very dissatisfied” with their income. Arts alumni are often happy with the balance they have achieved between satisfaction at work and their salaries... Fourth, although arts graduates are warned that they will struggle to find employment after graduation and that their employment may not make use of their skill set— exemplified by the proverbial actor/waiter—SNAAP data reveal a different story. On average, six of every ten currently employed arts graduates described their current jobs as “relevant” or “very relevant” to their training... Finally, after graduation, arts alumni move across the country—to towns big and small—and, wherever they live, they significantly contribute to and invest in their communities."
