SNAAP Spotlight on Graduation

SNAAP (Strategic National Arts Alumni Project) is an annual online survey for graduates of degree-granting arts education institutions – from arts high schools through undergraduate and graduate art and design colleges, conservatories, and more.

This issue of the SNAAP DataBrief takes a different direction and offers some food for thought from SNAAP Research Director, Steven Tepper, about the 120,000 students graduating this spring with a degree in the arts. The data are based on responses of 65,837 arts alumni from 120 institutions (109 postsecondary institutions and 11 arts high schools) in the United States in 2011 and 2012.
