Campus Life

NYU students reflect this diversity they arrive from all over the country and the world not only to find themselves and “make it” here. Students here eventually become a huge family and make so many amazing friends and memories here in NYU. While here, students can join a fraternity or sorority. They can join one of our sports teams: NYU athletics range from intramural soccer to varsity fencing. Here at NYU you are allowed to express yourself do they hobbies you enjoy and many more.

Career Info

The Department of Dance is a program where you have amazing talented and creative dancers ready to learn and improve on skills. To apply to the program you have to fill out an application followed by an audition, that determines if you made it into the department or not. The other career i am interested in is Photography.

I want to double major is those 2 departments. In the photography department people show their creativity and style by taking detailed photos of whatever they choose; models, nature, buildings etc. To enter in this program you have to fill out an application followed by submitting photos to a certain website. These two careers are full of creativity and talent that is why i want to double major in these careers.

Job Description

Both a Photographer and a Dancer are very fun and hardworking jobs. The annual pay for a dancer is $32862. Dance allows people to be more active and develop more creative skills. The Educational Requirements for a professional dancer is you have to go to many years of intensive training and post secondary dance programs. Including a Bachelors and Masters degree. A photographers annual pay is a $17,000 and $62,000 a year. A degree in visual arts or a related field may also be acceptable when combined with demonstrated proficiency with a camera. There isn't really any specific education for being a photographer but you at least need some training in Photographic arts in order to get a job.

Primary Source

My first primary source is a Dancer that graduated from NYU named Abigail Hampton. She is a very talented dancer. She can dance all kind of styles but she prefers contemporary. She states that she put a lot of hardwork and training to be where she is at today. She part time shows infants the basics and full time preforms at different events. My second primary source is John Murray. He is a photographer. John says he enjoys his job very much. He says it requires much patience and a good eye or creativity. He is a full time photographer for different events weddings, runways, graduations etc. He even takes photos in his free time for the practice and just for the heck of it. Both of these individuals enjoy their careers very much and wouldn't change it for anything else.
