Busting The Myth That Fine-Arts Degrees Lead To The Poorhouse

THE CONSUMERIST has a post saying that students with fine arts degrees are doing respectably well: “The Wall Street Journal reports on a 2011 study from Georgetown’s Center on Education and the Workforce, in which it found that the median income of recent fine-arts graduates was a respectable $42,000 and that the unemployment rate for those recent graduates was a better than average 7.8%.”  I’m not sure how this data reconciles with other studies I have seen that put arts degree students near the bottom in terms of income, though I am glad to see this encouraging news.
