Program description

Arts Management

The interdisciplinary concentration in arts management is approachable by studio art, art history, music, theatre and dance majors or minors. The concentration combines artistic sensibilities with business acumen.

Through the study of arts management, students become familiar with the important leadership role that arts administrators play in the non-profit arts fields of music, dance, theatre and visual arts. Museums and arts organizations must be managed by individuals who possess both an artistic sensibility and business acumen. It is for this reason that the concentration requires students to have a major or minor in one of the fields mentioned above (though courses are open to students from any school).

The internship experience provides students with first-hand exposure to the everyday functions of an arts organization. It links lessons learned in the classroom to practical applications in the field.

Upon completion of the curriculum, students will have learned the fundamental vocabulary and organizational structures unique to the discipline. They will have an awareness of current cultural trends and issues, which allows for thorough analysis and examination.
