Arts Management

We encounter art in many settings and contexts in our communities. Whether it is found in museums, galleries and public spaces or experienced as performances in theaters and music venues, its enriching presence represents the hard work of not only artists, but also the efforts of arts administrators and managers. These individuals make the availability of art possible by organizing and promoting arts events, as well as securing funding and innovating ways to engage their communities.

The Arts Management major is designed to give students the background and training they need to be successful arts administrators, preparing them for careers in the field or providing a strong foundation for graduate studies. The program emphasizes a passion for both art-making and arts management. For those committed to championing art as an essential ingredient of a vibrant culture, the degree offers a rewarding path.Graduates receive a Bachelor of Arts in Arts Management from the Art and Graphic Design Department.
