Graduates in the performing arts may choose from a variety of career options. Some attend professional training schools and/or graduate school for further concentration in their studies in dance, music, or theatre. Others earn certification through the Rockford University education department and teach at the primary or secondary level.

Performing arts graduates often pursue careers in jobs requiring presentational abilities: teaching, advertising, public relations, radio, sales, television, repertory and community theatres, recreation and film. The performing arts degree also may lead to a career in the performing arts, arts therapy, private studio teaching, or arts management.
