Any tips for an undergrad majoring in Art History?? and careers I can pursue with an Art History degree?? I thank you for your time : )
Hey! Unfortunately I can’t give you any direct tips for surviving an Art History degree (I’ll start studying next year though, yay) and I envy you! I did do some googlin’ for you and found a helpful blog. You’ve probably already seen it, but in case it’s got some new info here’s two helpful links:
As for what you can do with your degree, I love this question. I got told growing up that “there’s nothing you can do with an art degree but become a failed artist,” but shockingly there’s a lot of paths you can branch out to! A degree in art can lead to all kinds of design - visual art, furniture, interior, and clothing - or gallery and museum work. You can become the person that saves centuries old paintings, or you can work privately for an art lover and consult him on what to buy, or you can go on to become a teacher and inspire the next generation of artists. I’ll also give some links as to what the jobs entail in case you’d like more info, or just link to know what the heck the job actually is. Some of these jobs will be really similar to others, but different areas of the world view them a bit different, or they’re a bit more specific:
Something I do know, however, is one of the biggest things employers look for in all of these fields is (brace yourself) experience. Lucky for us art lovers, museums and art galleries are always looking for volunteers. I know in Melbourne, a lot of smaller galleries are run on volunteers. I recommend (if you haven’t already) to look for museums or galleries and ask them if there is anything you can help out with, that will help you build up your experience for the art world. There’s all kinds of things they can ask you to do. At museums they ask for help from anything like directing tours, to helping with the gardens. At art galleries you can help set up installments, or even become part of them.
I hope this answer helped even a little bit. Good luck with your studies!
