Arts Administration Majors & Minors

The undergraduate program at Butler focuses on a combination of skills and education in a specific arts discipline (dance, music or theatre) and a strong concentration of study in business, public relations and advertising. The program also includes instruction in the specifics of arts management, including fund-raising, audience development, organizational structure, community engagement and personnel management. A required component of the program is a six-credit internship in an established arts organization.

The Arts Administration program also offers a new minor in Museum Studies, perfect for those students who may be interested in working in museums, pursuing graduate studies, or are interested in expanding their knowledge of topics connected to this discipline.
