POPULARITY

Visual and performing arts is the 106th most popular degree in America, with 3,315 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #107 Health and Wellness, and narrowly lost to #105 Nutrition Sciences.

The degree is offered at a total of 243 colleges across the nation, and is the 94th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 19% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that practically 2 in every 3 colleges offering visual and performing arts are public making it a quite accessible field.

The southeast produces the most visual and performing arts graduates, largely led by University of Central Florida, while it’s the American Athletic Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Florida ranks highest, with particular help from University of Central Florida and University of Florida.

All that being said, no individual school produces more visual and performing arts graduates than Pima Community College, which graduated 253 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study visual and performing arts). More students studied visual and performing arts as a percentage of total students at Escuela de Artes Plasticas y Diseno de Puerto Rico than any other college.
