In 2012, the Jordan College of the Arts conducted an extensive survey of our alumni through the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP). The results of the study show that compared to other surveyed institutions, JCA alumni are:

  • More likely to have job placement before they graduate.
  • More likely to have first employment in the area of their studies.
  • More satisfied with career advising received at Butler.
  • More satisfied with internship opportunities during their undergraduate career.
  • More prepared for leadership roles.
