With an increase in the number of performing and visual arts facilities, arts councils and art advocacy groups, there is a growing need for individuals with both artistic and business skills to work in these organizations. The emphasis in art administration will prepare you for graduate study or entry-level administrative work with organizations such as art galleries and museums, arts councils and symphony orchestras, as well as opera, theater and dance companies.
