Beyond the BA: History of Art Undergraduate Student Career Symposium


Add to Cal
  • Host Department: History of Art
  • Date: 04/04/2011
  • Time: 4:00PM - 6:00PM

  • Location: U-M Museum of Art Multipurpose Room, 525 S. State, Ann Arbor

  • Description: History of Art students develop a sophisticated level of visual literacy, including the ability to analyze works of art and their social effects, an awareness of how values can be negotiated through visual culture, the ability to engage with a wide range of critical methods, and more. But how does this literacy translate to a job after graduation? Today, four alumni will share their exeprience going from Tappan Hall to the real world.
    Short presentations by featured alumni followed by Q & A. Please join us after the event in the Museum Forum for a reception with alumni and faculty, catered by Zingerman's.
