Undergraduate Overview

The Arts Administration & Policy department offers both Electives and Spine courses at the Undergraduate level; we have also outlined a number of Pathways for students who wish to do more extensive and focused work in arts administration. Our undergraduate offerings are designed to support artists, designers, educators, managers and entrepreneurs in the development of their professional practices.

Undergraduate curriculum in the Arts Administration and Policy department is designed to support students, both through hands-on work and through seminars, in the development of professional practice skills. Course material addresses two main professional routes: the development of a small business and/or working studio, and the development of work in exhibition-making.

It is recommended that students interested in focusing their studies in the department take a mix of applied and discussion-based classes, and that they take at least one arts administration and policy class each semester.
