Careers in Art and Design

An Art and Design degree can offer a variety of career opportunities. Iowa State alumni have diverse careers in areas including teaching, museum and exhibition curating, advertising and event planning. Many students choose to pursue a double major or minor, selecting coursework that supports their Art and Design education.

Second majors often include advertising, journalism, business, history or psychology. This combination can provide greater flexibility and lead to additional career paths. Recent graduates of the Bachelor of Arts program now work for the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines, Ames Public School District and Nationwide Insurance.
