Course blog for American University PERF-570, Fall 2014
Since most of you in this class have taken some form of arts in your undergrad I’m curious to know from your personal experience a) Is it true that just an undergrad in arts doesn’t help give you a stable career graph and b) Is it true that you see mostly white and non hispanic students in a general arts program.
My bachelors was in computer science, I didn’t really use that in my career either. I did other stuff along the way and then decide to pursue the arts as a full time career and much later in my life. Growing up in India you studied arts in undergrad only if you weren’t smart enough to be an engineer or doctor. Of course things have changed over the past 10 years, but there is a large bias.
Would love to hear your thoughts…
