"Institutional Connections, Resources, and Working Across Disciplines: What Arts Alumni Are Saying"

Based on new data from the 30,000 arts alumni respondents to the 2015 SNAAP survey, these results focus on three questions that were asked for the first time: (a) the extent to which alumni feel connected to their educational institution; (b) the resources current artists lack; and (c) which alumni work across multiple art forms/disciplines. Trends from previous reports are also discussed.

The Internship Divide: The Promise and Challenges of Internships in the Arts (PDF) >>

SNAAP's Special Report, "The Internship Divide: The Promise and Challenges of Internships in the Arts," details findings from nearly 68,000 individuals with undergraduate degrees in the arts from 140 institutions in the U.S. who responded to survey questions about their internship experiences.

Findings confirm the value of internships for arts students but suggest that paid internships are more effective than unpaid internships in leading to professional success. The research analyzes distinctions between types of internships, which majors are more likely to lead to internships, the demographics of those students who do and don't undertake internships and the effects of location and type of postsecondary institutions on internships.

It is based on data from more than 88,000 arts alumni of all ages, with a particular focus on the 17,000 recent alumni -- those who finished their undergraduate or graduate level degrees up to five years prior.

"An Uneven Canvas: Inequalities in Artistic Training and Careers"

Based on data from over 65,000 arts alumni nationwide, findings from this report show that a postsecondary arts education affords some unique advantages for women, minorities, and disadvantaged students. However, significant gaps remain and inequalities persist related to school debt, racial diversity within artistic occupations, and disparities in earnings by gender.
