Arts Administration

Arts Administration is a program for those who aspire to work in a museum, performing arts company, non-profit organization or other cultural institutions.

Combining knowledge of business and cultural organizations, Stonehill's Arts Administration major prepares students for careers and graduate study. 

This preparation begins right away. Our First-Year Arts Administration Major students investigate topics including:

  • The role of arts in society
  • Management strategies
  • Funding venues
  • Legal and ethical issues in the arts

Two Concentrations Available

Arts Administration majors at Stonehill choose one of two areas of concentration: Museum Studies or Performing Arts.

Students who choose to concentrate in Museum Studies focus their studies on art museums and galleries, as well as nonprofit arts organizations. Students who concentrate in Performing Arts may focus on theatre, music or dance.

Stonehill students also find that the Arts Administration major fits well as a double major with Art History, Business, Marketing or Communication.
