Students can use a graduate certificate as a means of becoming further specialized in a certain field. These programs are typically available to students who already have a bachelor’s or have partially completed their master’s degree.

What is a graduate certificate in art studies? After completing an undergraduate program in general artistic studies, many students will use a certificate program to learn more about a specific medium. There are a wide variety of possible focuses, including digital arts, computer animation, brand design and more. Most graduate certificates include many practical courses, helping people put together a presentable portfolio to be used when looking for work. Classes may also include non-visual arts, such as sound design and screenwriting.

Since finding work as an artist can be very difficult, earning this graduate certificate often provides students with additional opportunities in the marketplace. Developing very specific skills and an accompanying portfolio might allow students to start applying for work as soon as they receive their certificate.

The cost of a program will depend on not only the length of the course, but also the medium being studied. To get a better idea of possible expenses, it’s best to contact an academic institution directly.

Once you have a graduate certificate in art, you can hope to start putting your training directly to use in your chosen field. Those who study digital or standard animation can look for employment creating business promotions or doing graphic design. Those looking to work as teachers after finishing their education should be able to apply for a number of different positions. If your artistic focus is writing, there is decent demand for copywriters, as well as many other miscellaneous writing and editing jobs.

Professional artists have to deal with an ambiguous market, but having a graduate certificate can help add some clarity. If you’re interested in this career path, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
