Career Opportunities

The Sheridan Art and Art History (Honours Bachelor of Arts) program was originally conceived to train art teachers for primary, secondary and postsecondary schools. Teaching remains a popular career choice for program graduates, but many other opportunities beckon as well, some requiring further study at the master's level. A number of graduates are practicing artists who exhibit their work in artist-run, public and private galleries, both nationally and internationally. Others have pursued graduate studies in studio art, art history, conservation, or related fields in the humanities, leading to an MFA, MA or PhD.
