What Can You Do With An Art Degree?

You will develop more than just your own artistic skills – you will also learn critical thinking, communication, analysis, and problem-solving. The Art degree program at Elmira also ensures that by graduation, you'll have developed a portfolio of work to showcase to potential employers. Graduates of our Art program have gone on to become teachers, professional artists, illustrators, designers, art handlers, gallery managers, and curators. And many students at Elmira choose to double major in art/business, art/psychology, art/anthropology, art/English, or art/history.
