The Schreiner University Visual Arts Department offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Arts Management and Administration. A student will learn the operational fundamentals of arts organizations, while also choosing a specialization in a specific arts area (music, theater, or visual arts). Graduates of this degree are prepared to seek entry level careers in areas such as development and donor relations, marketing, audience development, public relations, artistic programming, volunteer coordination, arts education, and advocacy.
This program will prepare a new generation of engaged managers who, through critical inquiry, creative thinking, and business and communication skills, will support the arts and entertainment industry in a changing global environment. Our program prepares students to combine the tools of business—management, marketing, financial accounting, operations, negotiation—with the tools of community-building—fundraising, development, education, outreach, volunteerism, partnership—to make thriving and vital spaces for arts and culture.
