Performing Arts Administration, MA
Offered in: Roosevelt Online
The Master of Arts in Performing Arts Administration is designed to hone the skills of current and aspiring administrators in the performing arts field. It is open to students with an earned baccalaureate degree who are employed in the field of arts management or seek a career in that field.
The program develops leaders who understand and can manage the rapidly changing dimensions of 21st-century arts administration. Students within the program will take a broad range of courses in the areas of marketing, public relations, finance, development, technology, community engagement, organizational development, leadership, and facilities operations. Its unique nature lies in the hybrid structure of both online and in-person courses, as well as a faculty of expert practitioners, who are leading administrators with national and internationally prominent arts organizations.
Applicants must hold an earned baccalaureate degree in a relevant field with a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Each applicant will be required to submit a resume and a Statement of Purpose describing their goals and aspirations and how this Program will help them achieve those goals.
The program requires 30 credit hours of coursework, including a final capstone project, and two summer mini-residences of two weeks each. The period necessary for completion of the program comprises four consecutive terms: Summer I, Fall, Spring, and Summer II. The successful applicant may opt to take this Program in a one-year period in four consecutive terms or over a two-year period. If the two year period is chosen, the first summer mini-residency consisting of ARTM 450 and ARTM 455 is a pre-requisite to continue with the other courses. In addition the last course ARTM 495 must be taken as the last course.
Students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA. Up to two grades below B- may be counted toward fulfillment of program requirements. However, a third grade below B- will result in dismissal from the program.
After completing all other required courses, the student will design a Capstone Project consisting of both written and oral presentations. This project will integrate the learnings from program coursework and allow students to demonstrate their competency in applying solutions to a practical case study.
