Graduate Alumni

Recent graduates from our graduate programs have gone on to receive positions with universities, institutions and schools. Our doctoral students generally find tenure-track positions within a few years of graduation, if not sooner. APA students usually find positions with arts organizations, museums, or other government agencies. MA in Art Education students are often already employed as full-time art teachers, and usually stay in their positions.
