Where Do USM Art Students Go After Graduation?
If you were wondering what students do with a Liberal Arts degree, see what some USM Art Department Graduates are doing today.
“Being part of USM’s art department has changed my life. The department is a real community and everyone that I’ve met — peers, teachers, and staff alike — have made me feel known, cared about and supported. They’ve pushed me to think bigger but at the same time to be confident in my present work from process to interest.”
