Just what is a Bachelor in Arts Studies? This program is intended for students looking to engage in a thorough examination of art history, media theory, cultural criticism, humanities and a broad assortment of other art-related contemporary topics. Additionally, students in a Bachelor in Arts Studies program will be exposed to the art-making practice in its various forms, and will participate in numerous hands-on activities that relate to art in modern society, museum practices and related areas.  Other topics of study often include curatorial studies, critical and creative writing and an overview of common museum practices.

Bachelor in Arts Management

University Of Wisconsin - Green Bay
Campus Full time Part time September 2017 USA Green Bay

Arts organizations make communities come alive – from symphonies to jazz bands, theaters to sculpture gardens, museums to community arts centers, public radio to festivals. All of that activity is made possible by arts managers. [+]

Arts organizations make communities come alive – from symphonies to jazz bands, theaters to sculpture gardens, museums to community arts centers, public radio to festivals. All of that activity is made possible by arts managers. Arts management can be an exciting, fulfilling career for someone who likes to be close to the arts and artists and wants to work behind the scenes to make the arts happen. Arts managers work behind the scenes to bring art and audiences together – raising funds, marketing, organizing volunteers and facilitating programs. At UW-Green Bay, Arts Management is both a major and a minor. Many students pair the Arts Management major or minor with studies in music, studio art, theatre, dance, gallery and museum practices, English, or history. We believe that successful arts managers are equally proficient in art and administration – and we also believe that the arts are a unique industry and have management challenges that are not found in other kinds of businesses. Your studies will include arts management core courses along with courses in the arts, not-for-profit management and business. An internship or other practical, real-life experience is an important part of the experience. Who should be a Arts Management Major? Arts Management is an ideal major or minor for students who like to be around the arts but are not necessarily interested in being an artist or performer. It’s also a good choice for those who are preparing for artistic careers and want to have some training in the “business side” of the arts, so that they can manage their own careers, understand the organizations that hire artists, or even be prepared to accept administrative jobs between artistic gigs. We use the term “arts management” very broadly. Students in the Arts Management Program may be majoring or minoring in other artistic disciplines such as studio art, music or theatre, but students majoring in English, history, communications, business and economics have also minored or double-majored in arts management. Many arts management majors choose to minor in an artistic discipline, but Communications, English, Humanistic Studies, and many other programs can pair well with arts management. [-]

Training Program in Studio Arts

Metàfora Art School
Campus Full time 1 - 3 years January 2017 Spain Barcelona

Metàfora offers a complete Training program for students who wish to pursue a career as artists. This option can be considered as a valid alternative to a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts (BFA). [+]

Bachelors in Arts Studies. “I think art, if it’s meaningful at all, is a conversation with other artists. You say something, they say something, you move back and forth.” John Baldessari Metàfora’s Training Program in Studio Arts Metàfora offers a complete Training program for students who wish to pursue a career as artists. This option can be considered as a valid alternative to a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts (BFA). Art is about understanding the way an idea is communicated to you. Art is about discovering the potential of a material or a form, but also about challenging beliefs before they become too rooted. Metàfora’s Training Program encourages students to investigate intuitively through techniques and materials, but we also support artists who engage in conceptual analysis, breaking conventional frames and narratives. What is important is the wish for thinking and growing, a need for understanding the now. What is the Training Program: aims and objectives The Training Program in Fine Arts is divided into two sections: Year 1 (Certificate in Studio Arts ) and Year 2-3 (Diploma in Studio Arts / Advanced Diploma in Studio Arts). Any of the 3 years of the training program can be undertaken independently (admission according to general admission requirements). Metàfora’s Training Program is small and intimate in comparison with the big universities worldwide, and this carries with it a series of advantages: the International Workshop offers a homely studio atmosphere where all students are attended individually. The scheduled activities are designed as a flexible support around the creative practice of each student rather than vice-versa. While encouraging both aesthetic concerns and conceptual investigation, the aim of the program is to help students acquire the necessary tools for independent artistic investigation. Metàfora’s training program provides a rich environment for growth and opportunity in the current, vibrant art scene. Among the activities specifically designed for these students are several exhibitions, both on-campus projects, as well as events and projects in different commercial galleries and institutions around Barcelona.

Are you ready to join the social and political debate on the arts? Then the Bachelor's programme in Arts and Culture Studies at the Radboud University Nijmegen is just the thing for you. [+]

The approach is both interdisciplinary and multi-medial: you will not only analyse these art forms in and by themselves, but also learn to compare and contrast them. You are invited to explore art and culture from a number of theoretical, historical, political and social perspectives, incorporating European, North American and global views on (the value of) culture. Arts and Culture Studies teaches you to discern differences between art forms, and between contemporary and historical valuations of art; explain how arts and culture are socially, politically and ideologically constructed; apply theoretical notions to analyze works of art or cultural phenomena; formulate a clear and well-founded vision on art and (popular) culture; write academically sound essays that contribute to current debates on art and culture.

Study programme Year one The first year of the Bachelor's introduces you to the history of the arts (from literature to theatre, music, fine arts and film, and from the classics to digital art), to theories of culture, and to methods of analysis. It also encourages you to consider the question of the importance of art: how to truly appreciate the value of art and culture in today’s society? Year two The second year broadens the scope and includes courses offering both European and North American perspectives - on popular culture, American music and art, cultural diversity, globalisation, and intertextuality. Year three The third year deepens your understanding of culture, with three in-depth courses on visual culture and mass culture, and three courses reflecting on different aspects of the culture industry: Popular aesthetics, Screen cultures and The culture of fashion. Study abroad Are you interested in broadening your horizons? Radboud University offers you the exciting opportunity to study or do an internship abroad as part of your Bachelor’s programme. Spending time abroad during your studies is a great way to develop yourself, have exciting new experiences, and gain a competitive advantage with future employers. International experience can be valuable in many ways, and we encourage all of our students to look at the possibilities available for going abroad.

In this regard the IFT's 4 year culinary arts degree course is dedicated to providing students with an unparalleled up-to-date skill set which marks the IFT out as a beacon of educational excellence both within the pan-Asian region and beyond.
