Degree in Art - What are the potential careers

2 posts in this topic

Does anyone here have a degree in art? If so, did you find the education helpful? Was the degree itself useful at all? What do you do now?

A degree of any sort is only as valuable as your ability to apply it. In software, a fine arts degree could be applied to application/web design, game design, marketing, or a variety of other areas. Be mindful of the fact that design can be applied to all sorts of business needs, while "art" is probably not something you'll be able to make a living from (at least not initially).

Personally, I was exposed to tools like Photoshop, well before it became so popular. Not that many people knew how to use it, and I was interested in it for artistic reasons. Add those things together and I ended up with a career I never planned on. Maybe you have some interest in VR/AR or some other emerging tech?

Final thought, if you're smart, it doesn't matter what you major in.

Good luck!
