Undergraduate Pathway in Art Studies

Top 6 Undergraduate Pathways in Art Studies 2018/2019

Art Studies

Undergraduate pathways are programs that can help guide a new student into a regular undergraduate degree program, often in a foreign country. They can involve second-language training and other classes that may be used for credit for students’ intended majors.

What is an undergraduate pathway in art studies? Make-up artistry or fashion are two examples of undergraduate pathways in art. Beyond the language courses, make-up lessons may happen in a studio setting. A student may add two or three works to a reel and then be accepted into a bachelor’s program. In fashion, one may add some clothing projects or designs to a portfolio and have courses on promotion to help in marketing his or her skills. Business classes can be a component of this program.

Language skills may not only help in being accepted into a higher-level degree program, but they can also be used as students travel and meet new people. Another skill may be professional makeup proficiency, which can be used to create the perfect look for a job interview. Knowledge gained about sewing from a fashion course can be handy. A torn blouse or a missing button can be quickly stitched while away on business.

An undergraduate pathway is typically shorter than a regular degree program, so the tuition and fees can be comparably less, but each school’s cost can be different. The location can have an impact on price, especially if studying in a foreign country.

Career choices following an art pathway may include animator, antique appraiser, architectural designer, art appraiser, costume designer, craftsperson, creative director, courtroom artist or fashion designer. Other opportunities are glass blower, graphic designer, interior designer, makeup artist, museum archivist, photographer, photojournalist, web designer and many more. An undergraduate pathway in art can be the first step to a diverse group of jobs.

These programs are often offered in different parts of the world, both in the classroom and online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
