Careers in the Arts

Art is a broad field with disciplines ranging from painting to music, and performing arts to industrial design. Throughout the year the Arts Council, together with partners across the University, teams up with art professionals to explore creativity and provide opportunities for students to network while learning how to succeed in any chosen artistic path.

Career Week in the Arts + Entertainment

Every year, students from all majors gather to network with Boston College alumni who have forged artistic careers. Career Week in the Arts + Entertainment is a great opportunity for current students to discover what it's like to work in a chosen field, and how pursuing a passion can lead to a fruitful career.

In the past, alumni participants have included: musicians, composers, conductors, photographers, designers, painters, editors, producers, directors, journalists, administrators, writers, actors, instructors, consultants, and attorneys. 

I'd absolutely recommend Career Night to other BC students. I received great advice, and the alumni were all easy to talk to. I've already made connections and secured interviews!
