Job Placement

You are here

The SAAH helps its students in every possible way to find teaching and/or professional positions upon completion of the degree programs. Each qualified student will be encouraged to maintain a file in the Educational Placement Office of the University (N140 Lindquist Center, https://education.uiowa.edu/services/office-student-services). When requested by students faculty will write letters of recommendation. Incoming letters and other notices announcing job openings are made available to all students through postings the SAAH Opportunities page, meetings and individual counseling by faculty members.

As far as possible, the SAAH will circulate the names of qualified students, particularly M.F.A. candidates, to inquiring and appropriate art departments throughout the country. The Director and the faculty will also assist students in finding employment through personal letters to executives or faculty of other departments and conversations with departmental representatives at professional meetings.

There are offices on campus available to students for Graduate Awards/Grants and job information. These are located in the Division of Sponsored Programs (https://dsp.research.uiowa.edu/ or 2 Gilmore Hall) and the Pomerantz Career Center (100 Pomerantz Center, Suite C310 or https://careers.uiowa.edu/).
