Careers in Art

A beautiful career.


In the Nicholls State University Division of Art, we believe that students should find what they love to do, then find a way to make a living doing it!

Two of the most frequent questions we receive are: “What can I do with a degree in art?” and “Can I make a successful living as an artist?” We believe that the answer to both of those questions is an undoubtable, “YES!” We’ve had many alumni who have launched quite remarkable careers with the skills they’ve acquired.

Here, we’ve listed the career paths that some of our graduates have chosen so you can discover one that is right for you.

Periodically, we receive requests for student work outside the classroom by area employers and small businesses or non-profits. For students, please check back periodically for available internships or career opportunities. For potential employers, please contact the Art Office 985.448.4595 if you would like to post an internship or career opportunity for our Nicholls State University Art students.
