A Preliminary Exploration of Occupations in the Arts and the Humanities.
Hansen, Mary Lewis; And Others
Summary information on arts and humanities occupational clusters, obtaining occupational information, career ladder and lattice possibilities, job projections, and job competencies for arts and humanities careers is presented in this report of research, which resulted in a series of 11 arts and humanities career exploration resource guides for grade 7-12 teachers, counselors, and students. Each chapter includes some discussion of rationale and methodology as well as findings. Chapter 1 is a discussion of the redefinition of the arts and humanities occupational clusters. It includes charts of the arts and humanities clusters in relationship to other clusters; lists of job titles for dance, theater and media, music, visual arts and crafts, writing, and humanities; and a table which lists for each job title its functions or skills and level of educational preparation necessary. Chapter 2 describes the methods used to obtain occupational information on the various jobs and presents the outline guide used for gathering information regarding job description, supervision vs. autonomy, tasks and activities, time, geographic considerations, qualifications, job acquisition (career ladders), outlook, income, influences on career choice, activities and experiences, setting or work environment, other factors, unrealistic expectations, factors leading to particular job, job satisfaction, advice for students, and conflicts. Chapter 3 deals with examination of career ladder and lattice possibilities in each of the arts and humanities areas and chapter 4 with job projections in each area. The final chapter is a discussion of suggested competencies for arts occupations and for humanities occupations. (JT)
