About the Arts Administration Program

The arts administration field of study helps students develop a bridge between the world of business and the passion of the arts. Students are exposed to business areas such as accounting and nonprofit organizations as well as aspects of fundraising, stakeholder development, and cultural policies.

By developing a strong foundation in these areas, students gain an understanding of the problems within the arts and find solutions needed to strive. 

With a mixture of guest lectures from local arts leaders and visits to various art organizations, students are given an opportunity to become engaged in the community and witness first-hand the unique relationship between business and art.

As an inter-disciplinary course of study, students are prepared for fields in:  

  • Museums & art galleries
  • Graphic design firms
  • Theatres
  • Symphonies & recording studios
  • Dance companies
  • Art & humanity councils
