Why employers seek Art graduates

Category


Art and Design graduates are highly sought after by employers valuing their strong observational skills, fast problem-solving abilities and their unique creative thinking processes. However, studying art provides students with far more than just creative abilities, it nurtures and develops thought process and creates a willingness to collaborate and work well with others.

Orlaith Tunney from the TCD career advisory service states: “The independent study of the arts helps build resilience to deal with a rapidly changing world, the versatility and non-vocational nature of research is directly applicable to the world of work”.

At the University of Bolton, we recognise creative careers and their transferable skills which are essential to your future success. Our BA (Hons) Art and Design degree is as unique as you are. With personalised guidance from our experienced and supportive staff, you can explore the interplay between your two chosen art and design disciplines, including fine art, photography, graphic design, animation, illustration, textiles and surface design. During your portfolio interview we will help you carefully plan a portfolio of modules, offering you a distinctive learning experience that lays the foundation for your professional practice as a working artist helping develop your creative identity.
