Making It Work: The Education and Employment of Recent Arts Graduates. Annual Report 2014
Lena, Jennifer C.
Strategic National Arts Alumni Project
The Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) is a comprehensive survey administered online to the arts alumni of participating institutions. Completion time for the survey is generally 20 to 30 minutes. The results described in this report are based on data collected from the 2011, 2012, and 2013 annual survey administrations. This report shows that America's most recent arts graduates are using skills learned in school combined with internship experiences to find work, forge careers and engage their communities, despite higher student debt levels than older alumni. It is based on data from more than 88,000 arts alumni of all ages, with a particular focus on the 17,000 recent alumni--those who finished their undergraduate or graduate level degrees up to five years prior. [This report was written with Sally Gaskill, Rebecca F. Houghton, Amber D. Lambert, Angie L. Miller, and Steven J. Tepper. For the 2013 report, "An Uneven Canvas: Inequalities in Artistic Training and Careers. Annual Report 2013," see ED574454.]
