Students who major in the arts (theater, studio art, graphic design, industrial design, etc.) certainly know how to follow their muse, but what jobs can they get with a bachelor's degree in art after college is over? This list of common jobs for art majors shows that an art degree can lead you to a profitable career path.
If you can leverage your art degree to make it to the executive table, you can earn a pretty penny. Roughly twenty-five percent of Vice Presidents of Creative Services hold a bachelor's degree in media studies, and the typical median salary for this career is about $150,000.
Not surprisingly, marrying artistic talent with some STEM skills to land a job in tech as a User Experience Manager will net you a salary in the six-figure range.
