From Classroom to Career
The Student Voice Project (SVP) is a program designed and run by academic advisers in the UW School of Art + Art History + Design.
SVP hosts programming to help you recognize that your learning and experiences in the classroom relate directly to skills you will use to develop your career.
SVP is committed to dispelling the myth that learning in the visual arts limits the scope of professional opportunities for our graduates.
Students who major in art, art history and design graduate with the following:
- Practiced problem-finding and problem-solving skills
- Expertise in visual literacy

- Collaboration and leadership experience
- Research methods and the ability to complete resulting projects
