The design of the master’s degree program in arts management is based on the underlying belief that professional arts managers must be familiar with the social, cultural, political, and ethical contexts of the arts in general. Program Objectives: Prepare students for professional leadership positions in international, national, and regional public and private arts and cultural organizations, including museums and galleries, community nonprofit organizations, arts foundations, performing arts centers, and festivals; Provide field experience in arts agencies by incorporating a field-based internship component that enhances the student’s ability to move into professional positions in arts and cultural organizations; Facilitate the development of individual research projects that contribute to the body of knowledge on the theory and practice of arts policy, administration, and management in an era of dynamic sociocultural change; Provide opportunities for students to enhance their knowledge and skills or develop new careers in the arts. Careers: The master’s degree in arts management, depending on the chosen concentration, offers preparation for students who seek administrative careers in the visual arts, performing arts, community arts, or the arts in health-care management in the public, nonprofit, or the private sector.
