Opportunities Upon Graduation

Innovation is a key to entrepreneurship. Artists regularly create their own professional paths, and interdisciplinary work opens doors to new opportunities. Graduates of the program may find careers crossing between disciplines, such as music for film or dance and movement as performance art. Students with theater backgrounds may apply performing arts practices to sculptural objects. As we continue to develop new technologies, interdisciplinary artists can utilize a broad range of skills and talents to bridge art forms and facilitate cultural interaction.
