Arts Administration

Have you ever pictured yourself managing a dynamic music or visual arts organization?  Majoring in Arts Administration at Tiffin University can provide you with real opportunities in arts management.  For example, you could be in charge of a community or regional performance hall, or a professional musical ensemble or entertainment company.  You might be managing an advertising agency, a recording studio, or a related music business.  You could just as easily find yourself in management for an art museum, art gallery, or art co-op, either in the public and private sector.  The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination, and as boundless as your motivation to succeed.


The interdisciplinary nature of this major incorporates areas of study from the Arts, Communication, and Business.  Our students in this major are interested in the fine arts and/or art history, visual communication, music and arts management.  We also enroll students who have interdisciplinary interests.

As a student in Arts Administration, you will complete the courses in the Management Core and undertake an in-depth study in an area of one of two concentrations. 

You can choose from:

Visual Art
Music Industry
