The ability to think differently, offer up creative ideas, synthesize solutions, and infuse one's artistry are a few examples of the benefits to an education in the arts.  

Our programs develop intentional and transferable skills in students that allow them to connect, collaborate, and succeed in the art economy.  Our focus on workforce readiness is integrated in the curriculum and the opportunities that they provide.  From multidisciplinary course options, to internship and networking opportunities with our partnerships with industry-leading companies, organizations, and our vast alumni network, Hartford Art School students are prepared to take the next steps in professional goals and career explorations.

 

Unlike any of the other schools I applied to, the University of Hartford was an art school within a larger university, which opened up a lot of opportunities outside of art...I also feel the education I received gave me a strong base, not only with my artistic skills, but the ability to creatively problem solve. That's huge no matter what you decide to do."

Whether you design apps or ball gowns, curate galleries or edit video, the critical thinking skills you gain at the Hartford Art School prepare you for a fulfilling career that’s just as unique and tailored as you are.

You will learn more than how to work with clients, how to market yourself, and how to craft a résumé. You will learn how to lead teams and carry out a project from start to finish.

The spaces you visit, the chairs you sit on, the places you shop–all of these experiences are thought about and designed by artists.

Artists flourish in careers that demand vision and attention to detail. Companies like Starbucks, West Elm, Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie hire artists to produce site-specific, localized artworks for their merchandising and marketing needs.

Your creative solutions to modern problems make you an essential part of today’s workforce, and we can't wait to help you along your path.
