Employment and Graduate Studies

The Art and Art History major prepares students for careers not only as artists or professionals in museums, the arts industries, or education, but also for any career where creativity, imagination, analytical ability, conceptual clarity, cross cultural understanding, and a respect for human achievement and difference are valued.


An internship at an auction house is one of the best training there is for aspiring art world professionals. The range of skills to be learned is impressive.
