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.

President Alexander Responds to the Tragedy in Orlando  Thursday, June 16, 2016We the people of the United States cherish our freedoms. Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
