I have a fine arts degree and I also approve of this photo.

But honestly, other than teachers, doctors and engineers, does anyone really care about your degree after you've been working for 5 years or more?

Every idea or concept starts on paper. Art can make you money if you know how to use that degree, especially in the entertainment industry. Video Games (World of Warcraft)? Films (Pixar)? Artists are needed to bring ideas to life. I bet most of you haven't even thought of the amount of people needed to make everything you see on the screen happen right? Who animates all those characters? Who designs the worlds? Even during the planning stages (story boarding) artists are needed for planning and concept drawings. While it`s true that we aren`t dependant on it, Art provides color to an otherwise dull world, a window into someone`s imagination.

Art has a bad name because a lot of the people who are in it aren`t that serious about it. How do you really grade something as abstract as art? so people take it to just "pass by college". But the people who are serious about art really do well. It`s a highly competitive field (moreso than most) and not a lot of people are up fo

just thought i'd mention three things.

1. Don`t assume that science and engineering students don`t enjoy their subjects or working in them, because it just so happens we have an interest or talent in it.

2. there is an argument that arts degrees cost everyone else money. in the uk (where i study) we have a student loans system, and if you dont earn above a certain amount you dont have to pay back anything, or only a set amount depending on income. therefore if you do an arts degree because you enjoy it youre letting other people pay for what you enjoy, through the government`s loan not being repaid, using money that could be used more productively elsewhere, whereas most scientists and engineers tend to pay back their loans.

3. art is not what we are dependent on, its functional design, which is really more of an engineering than an arts thing
