THE ARTS ADMINISTRATION CO-MAJOR and MINOR

Both the co-major and minor options offer flexibility in your course of study, allowing you to tailor the program to your interests, whether it’s visual arts or performing arts, and, within performing arts, theatre or music. If you’re interested in business, you can choose marketing, finance, leadership/management or legal concepts. Co-majors in history, education, science, digital media or even fashion can benefit from an arts administration co-major, especially if you want to pursue a career in museums, historic parks/sites/homes, science centers, symphonies, ballets, public radio/TV or any other non-profit cultural organization.
