In 2011, the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts (UCIRA), oversaw the participation of all University of California campuses with degree-granting programs in the arts in the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) survey. The UC SnaapShot you are viewing presents an in-depth look at questions such as: How satisfied are arts alumni with their education? How many have gone on to pursue graduate degrees? Where have arts graduates found employment, and how much do they earn?
Approximately 96% of the students entering the University of California come from in-state and approximately 75% of them stay in California post-graduation. This work represents the first time data about the educational pipeline, college experience and career paths of arts alumni in California have been studied and publicly presented. Below are highlights of their responses. The following slides provide a deeper view.
