B.A. in Arts Administration

The show goes on, as it must, because someone puts it on. You have an artistic eye—and a practical, organized side—that together can bring the performing, visual, and cultural arts to life. Hone your skills, gain experience, and join the dynamic and diverse art world.

What You'll Study
As an arts administration major, you'll explore fine art and graphic design, art history, speech and writing, and the business behind the art scene. The arts management program is a blend of art, history, and business.

How You'll Learn More
Our on-campus gallery, theatres, and studios give you access to the latest technology and an inspiring group of student and professional artists. Through an internship in dance, music, or theatre, you can experience what it's like to work in various artistic organizations. The vibrant local arts scene exposes you to exceptional opportunities to visit, volunteer, and intern at the NSU Art Museum, Art Basel, and Miami's Wynwood art district.

Where It Can Take You
Whether you choose to work with the stage, a museum, an art school, arts organization, or studio, your core skills will be broadly applicable. You'll be prepared to secure funding for ambitious projects and develop programs for arts education, facility management, and exhibitions. Dare to turn dreams into reality.
