The interdisciplinary Arts Administration minor draws courses from several departments across the College of Arts & Sciences and the Sawyer Business School.
Courses from the Sawyer Business School and the Advertising, Public Relations & Digital Media, Art & Design, Theatre, and World Languages & Cultural Studies departments may be used to fulfill the minor requirements. Visit the Academics page for eligible courses in those areas.
The expansive world of arts administration provides a wealth of rewarding career opportunities. This course will provide a fundamental overview of the managing, marketing, fundraising, and financial management functions of the performing and visual arts organizations. Using Suffolk's Modern Theatre as a laboratory, as well as site visits to some of Boston's greatest arts and culture institutions, we will investigate real world successes and challenges and discover what special talents each individual student can bring to the management mix. This course is a core requirement for Suffolk's new interdisciplinary Arts Administration minor.
