Graduates from the Art and Art History Department pursue many career prospects, including commercial art, education, museum and gallery work, woodworking, architectural drafting, photography, and other fields.
The University Advising and Career Center in Hood House helps students establish career goals, explore employment opportunities, and brush-up on interviewing and resume-writing skills. Resources available through the Career Center include vocational interest testing, a computer career decision making package (FOCUS), a job locator program to help students locate part-time and summer jobs, and a network of alumni and parent career advisors. The Career Center also coordinates a senior recruiting program (where employers come on campus and interview students that have submitted resumes) and a Career Fair (where dozens of employers are available to meet with students and answer questions). A list of job-related web sites is available from the Career Center.
