Program Goals and Objectives
The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Arts Management provides competency in the fine arts with a solid foundation in business. The program develops skills in critical thinking, leadership, management, planning and finance; adding specialization courses to apply these aptitudes to arts institutions. A concentration is established in one area of the arts (Visual Art, Film, Music, Theatre or Dance.) Each area of arts concentration includes history and theory classes as well as applied work. The additional Arts Management coursework includes arts-specific classes in accounting, economics, management, marketing, law, and public relations, communications, public speaking and computer graphics.
