Students benefit from broad instruction of business models, managerial roles, and best practices that support and promote a variety of visual, performing, and media arts and artists.
In addition to this core, students will choose a track that will focus on a particular area of the arts offered at Wesleyan College. This major exemplifies the core of Wesleyan College’s mission to mentor students to become leaders in their field. Through learning how to support and market artists and art events, raise funds, manage finances, and develop programming for arts organizations, students will be prepared for a wide range of graduate programs and careers .

The arts management major incorporates field experience and self-designed projects into its curriculum, providing students the opportunity to work with professionals outside of Wesleyan College and tailor their learning to their post-graduation interests. It enables students to become leaders and managers as they engage with organizations on and off campus. Students will be encouraged to engage in summer work at arts and cultural institutions, attend conferences in their area of study, and explore internship opportunities.
