Career development and professional practice skills are critical for artists and an integral part of the film program and Department of Transmedia curricula.
In addition to the tools acquired in your program, you may take advantage of the College of Visual and Performing Arts' "Professional Practices in Visual Arts" course, which prepares students to become professional, working artists. Visiting and resident artists and scholars are a wealth of professional knowledge, and you will have the opportunity to interact with them throughout your Syracuse education. In addition to the numerous visiting artist events in the Department of Transmedia, SU:VPA, and the organizations of SU's Coalition of Museum and Art Centers, you can attend University Lectures, Syracuse Symposium events, and more.
You can apply the skills you learn in the studio and classroom in professional settings by voluntarily participating in an internship, which refines technical proficiency, develops professional confidence, and bridges the gap between college and the professional world.
SU’s Center for Career Services can serve as a resource for you. They can assist with your resume, LinkedIn profile, interviewing skills, or other job application materials and concerns.
