Arts Management Program

MA in Arts Management or a Graduate Certificate.

George Mason's program emphasizes not administration, but rather the management of all aspects of the arts: commercial and not-for-profit; theatre, dance, music, visual, museum, literary, film, video and the combination of any and all of these in exciting arts centers around the country. Graduates provide for the continuance, development and nurturing of the art form, the artist and the audience, using technology, science, best practices, relevant and vibrant communications and good practical reasoning, taught by some of this country’s most outstanding practicing arts managers. The vision is to see arts managers bring into alignment the many resources required to birth, sustain, and further develop arts organizations.

Effective Fall 2012, a new Arts Management Graduate Certificate program will be offered. The Certificate is intended for those who know the specific expertise they desire to acquire to either enter into or advance arts management or related careers. Candidates choose one of the four concentrations: Marketing & Public Relations in the Arts, Entrepreneurship, Programming & Project Management in the Arts, Fundraising & Development in the Arts.
