Major Profile - Arts Management
Arts Management graduates know creative arts and cultural industries.  They practice creative and critical thinking, opportunity recognition and entrepreneurship.  They recognize the importance of blending concepts and skills from multiple arts disciplines, public policy environments, and management operations.  Their career skills can be applied in multiple venues including public or nonprofit arts councils, arts agencies, and advocacy groups at the local, state, regional or national level.  Graduates work in arts and cultural institutions of various sizes and diverse missions.  Because of their management-related skills they can work collaboratively with artists in entrepreneurial or for-profit arts organizations.  Many of these graduates continue with graduate study in Ohio State's MA and PhD programs.  To learn more contact the department advisor, Ed Quinn at Quinn.142@osu.edu or 614-292-6961.
Student Research Profile - Emily Schueller
Emily Schueller traveled to the Old City area of Hyderabad, India to research  education and status among Muslim women.  She interviewed women, observed classes and learned about barriers to education.  This helped her to understand the circumstances, beliefs and attitudes of the women as well as how they created change in their own communities.  To prepare herself, she talked with faculty from multiple departments and enrolled in a class on ethnographic research methods.  She transferred what she learned in her anthropology classes to how she explored her topic and hopes to continue with related research.  Read more here.  Learn more about research by contacting the Undergraduate Research Office.
Career Corner
Career clusters are groupings of occupations that appeal to people with similar interests.  For instance, those interested in the Human Services cluster tend to enjoy work that involves making a positive impact on the lives of others.  When employers post their jobs and internships in FutureLink they are required to select the career cluster associated with their opportunities. Because they are categorized in this way, you are encouraged to 1) identify the career clusters that appeal to you the most and 2) search for opportunities in FutureLink that are affiliated with those clusters.  This will make it easier to find internships and resume builders that relate to your interest areas and skill sets! For information about the career clusters, including video overviews of occupations, see Career Clusters.  You might also find it helpful to meet with the Career Prep Advisor who specializes in the career cluster that most interests you.  For information about this service see Career Prep Advising.
Would you like to have your resume critiqued?  Bring a hard copy of your resume to 100 Denney Hall and let the front desk know you're there for Resume-O-RamaA Career Services staff member or Peer Career Advisor will provide feedback and suggest improvements.  Open to all Arts and Sciences undergraduates.  Hosted by Arts and Sciences Career Services!  No appointment needed.

Religion and Law in Comparative Perspective
(HISTORY 3680; RELSTDS 3680) 3 Cr. Hrs. - new spring semester 2016
It is almost impossible to go online or watch TV without learning about a conflict at the intersection of religion and law: Should yoga or creationism be taught in public schools? Should religious symbols be displayed in public? Should same sex marriage be legal? Should corporations be required to provide their employees with access to contraception?  As contentious as these questions are, they have been addressed in different ways in other times and places. This course will develop tools for thinking critically about these issues. 
Team-taught with faculty in History and Comparative Studies. GE historical study and diversity global studies course. Sample syllabus: Religion and Law in Comparative Perspective.
