Admissions: Programs of Study

Arts Administration (Art and Business)

The Arts Administration major (a cooperative program with the Business, Music, and Communication Arts Departments) is for the student who has a strong affinity for the visual arts and plans to work in arts management. The program combines a dual foundation in both art and business, and provides the student with historical, experiential, practical, critical, and aesthetic information. Courses in business and managerial science, art history and studio arts, and practical experience in museum, gallery, and historic preservation venues are required. A secondary concentration in either Communication Arts or Music rounds out the course of study.
