Aisha’s Answer

Hello!

Fine arts focuses on the visual artistic aspects of art, such as theater, painting, sculpture, music, and more. This degree is good for those who want to work with the creation of art, and pursue careers such as writers, artists, and musicians. I majored in Music and I minored in music theory; in high school I majored in music.

Karlyn’s Answer

Hello! I got my degree in Psychology, but I minored in art. I was lucky because I lived in Australia and while I was home having children I was able to use calligraphy to make money. I taught a lot of classes and also did wedding invitations. Years later when I moved back the US, I did not believe I could survive on those skills and went to telecom--MCI that later became Verizon. My liberal arts has been an asset! I can edit many of our reports because Engineers are notoriously bad spellers and my ability to think globally is appreciated. I honestly don't believe that anyone should count on making a true living with fine arts---but it is a beautiful asset to your life.

Fernando’s Answer

Fine Arts can usually have different focuses. In my case I went into the field of creative writing with my courses geared towards narrative structure, world building and the various writing formats such as: script writing, prose and novel just to name a few. There are Fine Arts major that have you studying different fields such as: drawing, painting, photography and even sculpture. Research what the college is offering with its Fine Arts program and see if it clicks with you. If there's a particular area of Fine Arts that calls your attention try to see if there are more specialized courses geared towards that field.

Michelle’s Answer

Hi Ina!
Fine Arts is a broad area of study that fulfills any need or desire for creativity in your life. I majored in Visual Art (painting, drawing, sculpting, etc.) but still was exposed theater arts, photography, printmaking and the like. If pursuing a true career as an artist, majoring in Fine Art could certainly help you learn different skills and find your true medium. However, I have found that my Visual Art degree has still come in handy in my career as in wireless network field engineering. While most of my peers have engineering degrees in my field, my liberal arts degree taught me to think differently, communicate in abstract and creative ways and problem solve from a more unique point-of-view.

Majoring in any discipline can be applied in a myriad of career paths, the important part of college is taking in the nuance, social skills and self-discovery to find out what sparks joy for you!
