Arts Administration prepares students to undertake entrepreneurial business endeavors in the arts– whether that applies to managing developing artists or leading and operating visual and performance-related outlets. An Accelerated M.B.A. option provides an opportunity to enroll in graduate courses during senior year and then complete a Masters of Business Administration in one additional year after graduation with the B.A. in Arts Administration. The M.B.A. coursework is available both in face to face classes or fully online.



Students in the Arts Administration program have the opportunity to select a track within the disciplines of the college– Art, Dance, Theatre Arts or Music. While taking classes in the selected track, students also take classes in leadership, communication, marketing, accounting, grant writing, public organization and others.
