Get the advantage you need to start a career that combines your love of the arts with ironclad business skills and community-building strategies. Our unique program provides unparalleled opportunities for hands-on experience working with local artists and organizations, so you can hone your management skills as you complete your degree. Whether you see yourself behind the scenes in a theatre, museum, gallery, nonprofit, or somewhere else entirely, you’ll benefit from the flexible, creative mindset that comes with attending an art and design school, combined with the business know-how you need to leave the competition in the dust.


Our students have worked almost anywhere you can think of: private and public galleries and museums, theatre troupes and operas, magazines and newspapers, television shows and Hollywood films. You get the point: we want you working. Because our internship is a graduation requirement for Arts Management majors, it’s not a chance – it’s a promise.
