Tyler School of Art's Life After Tyler podcasts

A new initiative from Tyler School of Art Dean’s Student Advisory Council (DSAC): Life After Tyler podcasts! The DSAC asked for career workshops they could fit into a student’s busy schedule, so we will be producing podcasts for you to listen to while you run, commute, or work in the studio. Watch for these helpful podcasts periodically (the goal is to produce at least one every other week). If you would like to suggest a topic, or if you would like to make one yourself, contact Student Life (
