Career Resources

Job Opportunities

The Department of Art & Art History regularly shares undergraduate internship, research, and networking opportunities via two email lists: one for declared majors and minors; the other for those interested in opportunities in Art & Art History, subscribe here.

Stanford Career Education (CareerEd) engages with students to help them design their career pathways, venture into new opportunities, and pursue their job search. CareerEd guides students to make connections that will serve them on the path to meaningful work. A great starting point with CareerEd is the H&S Career Toolkit on Canvas, which includes their most popular resources and career links, all in one place. CareerEd curated these Arts, Media, and Entertainment Opportunities for students interested in careers in creative fields. CareerEd has a wealth of resources specifically tailored to students in H&S. The many resources in CareerEd's H&S Toolkit include a job search action plan, writing resources for resumes and cover letters, and tips on interviewing.

College Art Association Graduate Program Directories

Graduate Programs in Art History

The CAA Directory contains graduate programs in art and architectural history, arts administration, curatorial and museum studies, and library science. Organized alphabetically by institution name, entries describe curricula, class size, faculty specializations, admission and degree requirements, library facilities, opportunities for fellowships and assistantships, financial aid information, housing and health insurance availability, and more. Geographic and alphabetical indexes are included.

Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts

The CAA Directory includes graduate programs in studio art and design (including digital media, object design, and other forms), art education, conservation and historic preservation, and film production. Organized similarly to Graduate Programs in Art History, this volume also provides information about studio facilities, including health and safety information.

The College Art Association published the last directories in 2017, reflecting listings received in 2016. Both directories can be downloaded and searched by keyword.
