What job(s) can I get with a studio art bachelor's degree?

I'm a senior in high school so I haven't exactly figured out my life yet but I know I'm going to get at least a bachelor's degree with a major in studio art. I didn't really look into what kind of jobs that i can get with this degree because I decided that i wanted to go to college at the last minute but now that I'm going to school (and trying to pay for it) I want to know what my options are for a career. #career-choice #experience #artist

Hi Emma,

With Studio Art it's really best to have a career direction as soon as possible. I got a degree in Studio Art and thought I wanted to work as an art therapist, but eventually went back to school for Graphic Design. I now work as a graphic designer and it truly is a great fit for my personality. Perhaps you should examine what other things you are interested in and how your Studio Art degree could relate to that passion? You can always work as a freelance artist, but keep in mind that it requires a lot of hard work and dedication. If that's the direction you want to go, I recommend you take some Business electives and learn about writing your own contract as an artist, taxes, etc.

Best of luck.
