Forks in the Road: The Many Paths of Arts Alumni | Creative Campus | Scoop.it

"More than 120,000 visual and performing arts degrees are granted each year and stereotypes abound about what happens with these people.  One common view is that few make a living doing art and are dissatisfied with their education and career opportynities.  Findings from the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) suggest this portrait does not comport with the reality experienced by most graduates of arts-intensive educational programs.  In general, arts graduates are happy with their training and have few regrets."
