ARTS ADMINISTRATION

An arts administration option within the baccalaureate degree program is available in the areas of art and music. The option is designed to provide the student with a curriculum in the arts combined with a minor in business. The arts administration option directs the student toward potential employment in art galleries, museums, and recital halls. It also prepares the student for potential employment in local and state arts councils and arts funding organizations.

The basis for the arts administration option is a major in studio art, art history, or music with specified ancillary requirements and a Culverhouse College of Commerce and Business Administration minor in management or business administration. The remainder of the hours required for the degree are College of Arts and Sciences requirements and electives. See "Arts Administration Option" (p. 74) and "Music Administration" (p. 105).
