Arts Administration is a multi-disciplinary major offering a choice of four (4) separate concentrations leading to the Bachelor of Science degree: a concentration in Art; Music; Theatre; and cross cultural concentration; combined. As Arts Administration is multi-disciplinary it is, in some regards, more complex than many disciplines: Students complete a set of foundations courses in their concentration; complete a series of Business courses; complete Arts Administration professional courses; complete a full-time, semester long internship; in addition to finishing the full range of general education requirements.
The aim is to give students foundation(s) in the performing and/or visual arts combined with a background in business administration to prepare them for entry-level leadership/management positions in arts and arts related organizations. The Arts Administration program is most appropriate for highly motivated, self-starting, achievement oriented students. As the program focus is on leadership and management, students are expected to maintain a high GPA and must have a minimum of a C grade in all courses required of the major.
