If you re creative and imaginative, a degree in art could be just what you re looking for to express yourself. Art may not be a vocational subject that is, one that leads to a specific career but this does not mean it won t be a good preparation for the world of work.
Whether you choose to specialize in fine art or the history of art, the skills you gain during your degree are likely to be highly valued and transferable to many sectors, including specialized art careers as well as many general graduate roles. Alongside a range of practical arts skills, art graduates should also have good observational, analytical and research skills, including the ability to solve problems creatively and work well both independently and in groups.
In the majority of the art careers detailed below, you will find it essential or highly advantageous to have a varied portfolio of work to show prospective employers, including some of your own original ideas as well as coursework. The theoretical side of your degree should allow you to put this work into context, explaining your influences, the thought behind your choice of themes and why you used certain materials and techniques.
Center for New Music: The Boston University School of Music at the College of Fine Arts seeks to continue its tradition of promoting new music with the Boston University Center for New Music. This center, located at the heart of a thriving music school, seeks to enhance the presence of cutting-edge music within the curriculum while encouraging awareness of new music within the BU arts community. To widen the conversation among the greater University, the center hosts lectures, demonstrations, and performances that are open to the public, providing a forum for broader interdisciplinary involvement. To that end, the center also hosts several institutional collaborations and selected concerts presented at off-campus venues.
