Careers in Art History
A degree in art history gives students a foundation for many careers in the arts and other professional fields. Students interested in working for galleries, museums, community arts organizations, and arts publishing often pursue undergraduate degrees in art history. Those interested in teaching at the university level, working as a curator in a museum, or as an art conservator will need further study at the graduate level. Majors in art history don't need to limit their careers to art related fields. The discipline's emphasis on information gathering and analysis, organization, presentation skills, writing, and editing prepare students for many professional jobs. Proficiency in these areas is excellent preparation for work in the fields of communications, editing, law, business, and arts administration.
