The MFA in Performing Arts Management Program attracts a diverse student body and offers both a theoretical and practical foundation for a career in performing arts management.

The goal of the program is to graduate students who are immediately qualified to assume specialized administrative positions with professional arts organizations and, importantly, students who will eventually assume leadership positions in the field.

In this program, students will:

    • broaden their knowledge of the performing arts
    • acquire an understanding of current management theories and practice via small seminar-style classes taught by working professionals
    • gain a variety of meaningful work experiences in the field through externships and professional residencies, which are held concurrently with class work to enhance learning
    • become part of an alumni network whose members work in all aspects of the field.


TRAINING

The required 60 semester hours of course work must include at least three semester-long internships served with leading professional performing arts organizations.

On a full-time basis, the program may be completed in two years (four semesters).
