Arts Management Degree
Arts organizations make communities come alive — from symphonies to jazz bands, theaters to sculpture gardens, museums to community arts centers, public radio to festivals. All of that activity is made possible by arts managers.
Arts management can be an exciting, fulfilling career for someone who likes to be close to the arts and artists and wants to work behind the scenes to make the arts happen. Arts managers work to bring art and audiences together — raising funds, marketing, organizing volunteers and facilitating programs.
The arts is a unique industry and has management challenges not found in other kinds of businesses. Successful arts managers are equally proficient in art and administration. Your studies will include arts management core courses along with courses in the arts, not-for-profit management and business.
