A Diverse Palette: What Arts Graduates Say about Their Education and Careers. Annual Report 2012
Strategic National Arts Alumni Project
Educators, researchers, and policy makers have long been interested in what happens to students after they graduate. For this reason as well as others, some high schools and most colleges and universities try to stay in contact with their alumni. While the quality of K-12 and postsecondary education in general has long been debated, in recent years the value of arts education has been particularly questioned. Yet reliable data on some highly desired outcomes of postsecondary education, perhaps especially arts education--such as the capacity to continue to learn on one's own or to think deeply about and craft creative solutions to complex problems--may not be evident until many years after college. This annual report from the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) provides some answers as well as context for a better understanding of student learning outcomes in arts education. (Contains 8 tables, 6 figures and 11 notes.)
