WSJ: Graduates of Arts-Focused Schools Are Shown to Rack Up the Most Student Debt.

Quote:
"
Most people assume a degree in the arts is no guarantee of riches. Now there is evidence that such graduates also rack up the most student-loan debt.

A Wall Street Journal analysis of new Department of Education data shows that median debt loads at schools specializing in art, music and design average $21,576, which works out to a loan payment of about $248 a month. That is a heavy burden, considering that salaries for graduates of such schools with five or fewer years' experience cluster around $40,000, according to PayScale.com."

Not really surprising, considering that there are virtually no state-funded art schools (unless you count schools of art within a larger university, which I don't think they are).

Meloncov notes,"Not really surprising, considering that there are virtually no state-funded art schools"

Response: Although there aren't many, there are some state funded schools. Mass College of Art is a state school and so is FIT.
