Careers and a Fine Arts Degree

Local tools


Did you know?

Canada’s cultural sector generates roughly $46 billion or 3.8% of the GDP.


People often ask, "What can I do with a degree in Fine Arts?", when in fact the question should be “What can’t I do?” Apart from the deep, broadly-based general creative education that you will receive at Concordia, there are many transferable skills that can be applied to a wide variety of jobs. All areas of study within Fine Arts develop analytical, interpretive and communication skills which are attractive to potential employers. Your options are as wide and varied as your interests and talents.

Consult out CAPS (Career and Placement Services) website for details on the many skills and job opportunities that a degree in Fine Arts can offer.
