Many of our undergraduate students go on to graduate school at other prestigious universities, building careers as leading artists, designers, artistic directors, researchers, scholars, and educators in their disciplines. UB Art alumni can qualify for a range of professions that include art galleries, museums, alternative spaces, and auction houses where alumni work as directors, curators, preparators, installers, and art handlers.
Art Department alumni include independent artists who exhibit nationally and internationally, execute commissions, and receive national and international awards. Other alumni are assistants, collaborators, and project coordinators to world-class artists. Our students have become professors and lecturers at leading colleges and universities, and teachers at community colleges, secondary schools, and arts-in-education programs throughout North America. They are art therapists in health care professions, schools, community centers, and correctional facilities. They are also employed as graphic and web designers. Art alumni publish fine art editions, run galleries, printing firms, custom framing businesses, and casting foundries.
