Studying arts management gives graduates the tools to create, develop, facilitate and evaluate cultural programs and organizations. Arts managers work in many places—art museums, historical museums, orchestras, theatre companies, foundations, dance companies, arts councils, festivals and arts education centers. Or, they work for themselves, using the skills gained in arts management to manage the business end of their own arts practices.
MCLA is one of the few institutions in the nation to offer an undergraduate degree in Arts Management, and one of the best places to do so. The world-class cultural economy of the Berkshires provides internships, future employment, and unlimited opportunity for learning outside the classroom.
