Leading from Behind the Scenes
Whether your dream is to run a theatre company, manage a gallery or be the creative force behind the scenes, you’ll be prepared. Arts management is one of a handful of BFA programs in the country and the only BFA in the Midwest that allows students to develop the knowledge and skills they need to become highly sought-after professionals. The discipline combines the tools of business — management, marketing, media development, planning — with community-building skills like fundraising, development, education and volunteerism to build bridges between art, artists and audiences. You will help create your city’s culture.
