Arts Administration at Waynesburg University
The arts administration major prepares the student to work in cultural institutions, such as art museums and galleries, professional theatre, recording and sound production companies, opera and dance companies, symphony orchestras, and regional or community arts organizations. It also prepares the student for graduate work in arts administration.
The program is interdisciplinary, combining courses in business and communication with courses in one of three areas of concentration in the fine arts: art, music, or theatre. The graduate will have the historical, critical, and aesthetic knowledge of the arts needed to work in the field as well as skills and insight in the areas of accounting, personnel management, public relations, and general arts management. A sensitivity to the arts and understanding of the process involved in producing visual art, concerts, and plays will allow the graduate to collaborate effectively with artists, performers, directors, theatre technicians, and others working in arts-related positions.
An internship is required and will be arranged collaboratively by the student and the department.
