What will I learn?

Le Moyne College’s Graduate Programs in Arts Administration offer an opportunity to study and apply management concepts in an arts environment - in short, Making Art Work.

While participating in this interdisciplinary program, you will study marketing and fundraising, learn to collaborate with a board of directors, understand how to interpret financial documents, and gain perspective on managing a creative workforce, all of which will benefit you as you pursue or continue a career in the visual and performing arts. Some courses are offered in a hybrid, on-line or condensed format.

Theoretical knowledge will be applied through a capstone consulting project with our partner cultural organizations, and a global perspective will be woven throughout the coursework.
