Art Outcomes

Bethel art graduates have presented themselves well at job interviews and have succeeded in a wide variety of occupations, from floral arranging to faux painting. They have a broad visual art and liberal arts background and are flexible in adapting to expectations in the wider job market. One alumnus with a B.A. in art (painting) was hired to design the painting of aircraft exteriors at Cessna. Another was recently admitted to the University of Kansas School of Architecture master’s program, successfully competing with graduates of other colleges and universities with a more focused B.F.A. degree. Bethel students apply a strong work ethic to the sound education they receive and can go far in all sorts of career directions.

Post-graduate careers include:

  • floral arranging
  • faux painting
  • graphic design
  • pottery
  • architecture
  • illustrators
