With a major in IS and a minor in the arts, I agree with Ellen that this is a great combination and would make you a great candidate for roles in so many areas, like digital media. I also think that if you are really creative in both areas of technology and arts that you could also go into web and architectural design. Honestly, your career path could go in so many different areas that you could really focus on what you are passionate about most to help be your guide. In any role or career, being passion about the work you are doing is one of the best motivators of all time. Also, when looking for a role once you complete school and have your degrees, do not limit yourself by applying to roles only in these fields. Often times roles and responsibilities on paper can lead to so many additional opportunities once you have started with an employer and shown what your talents are.

Whoa! What a great combination. What come to my mind immediately is a career working with library collections that specialize in art. (Duh!). Most museums have their own library, which along with books and periodicals, now includes all sorts of digital media, film and videos related to their collections. Then of course there are college and university libraries and art departments that also have their own art sections. When I was in college way back in the pre-digital ages, I remember an art slide library at my college, where slides of artworks were stored, and there was a librarian working specifically with that collection (it was huge). I'm sure there is a modern-day equivalent position there today.


So, I would talk further with you school librarian or you faculty advisor and see if you could get a summer internship working in a library or in a section of a library that deals with art. Contact your school's career office (if you have one) and see what they can tell you. Also, you might contact your college or university's Alumni office to see if they could connect you with any of their previous students working in the IS field or in the museum field.


Best wishes. Hopes this gives you some ideas.

You may want to research User Experience and User Interface (UI and UX) Design which could be good roles for someone with a technology and art background. Here is an article for reference on the roles:

I agree with Natalie. The combination of IS and SA could be very valuable for U/X Design and Information Architecture. Learn Photoshop, InVision or Blasamiq wireframing tools along the way. Based on my experience working with folks who has completed Information Science major, they end up making a career in content taxonomy/ organization, information architecture, etc. where their expertise in organizing and disseminating information becomes a critical requirement. That said, you might want to check out Linked In for profiles with "Data Science" role. There is a lot of demand for Data Scientists who can work with data collected in datalake and make sense of vast information. See if the college curriculum for Information Science go deep enough into data science. PINKAL GANDHI Translate

Once you figure out how to do Studio Arts and you learn Information Science you can then solve problems in the Entertainment industry with Computer/AI solutions.
