Program Goals and Objectives

Le Moyne College’s new Graduate Programs in Arts Administration offer an opportunity to study and apply management concepts in an arts environment – in short, Making Art Work.

While participating in this new, interdisciplinary program, you will study marketing and fundraising, learn to collaborate with a board of directors, understand how to interpret financial documents, and gain perspective on managing a creative workforce, all of which will benefit you as you pursue or continue a career in the visual and performing arts.  Students will have the opportunity to complete either a Master of Science (M.S.) or a Graduate Certificate in Arts Administration.

Theoretical knowledge will be applied through a capstone consulting project with our partner cultural organizations, and a global perspective will be woven throughout the coursework.

As you learn more about our program, remember that Le Moyne College is dedicated to “cura personalis,” or “care of the whole person.”  Our world-class faculty will devote themselves to providing a high quality education and real-world experiences for each of our students.
