Careers for Arts Students

An Arts degree opens up a broad range of career options; the difficulty is trying to work out which of these you wish to pursue. Many people wish to pursue a degree related to their majors while others would be quite happy with a career where they are utilising the skills acquired from their degree.

To choose a career, you need to consider the extent to which you would like to use the specialist knowledge gained through your major. You may choose to work in an area specific to your major; in a career where the knowledge of your major might be very useful; or in career that uses the general skills you have acquired whilst studying Arts.

Also, you have gained a high level of technical ability alongside general skills. Having an awareness of these skills and being able to give examples of them in applications and at interview will make you more employable.
