The curriculum is based on a strong foundation in the arts (music) and in the context of increasing social, technological, and economic change.
The College of Music’s Arts Administration program is designed for students who seek administrative or management positions with arts organizations including performing arts centers, symphony orchestras, opera companies, choruses, museums, government and private arts agencies, community arts programs, and arts councils. The program aims to bridge theory and practice through coursework and a required internship. Our graduates have gone on to hold positions with prominent arts organizations around the country including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Grand Opera, the National Endowment for the Arts and Tessitura.
FSU offers the unique opportunity to study arts administration in a music context and be a part of the College of Music community. Our faculty are full-time residential teachers with vast experience in the field of arts administration. Small class sizes allow students to build strong relationships with faculty and students. Students will also work with faculty and students in the College of Fine Arts and take courses with students studying Arts Administration and Theatre Management in the Department of Art Education and the School of Theatre.
Florida State University offers two Masters of Arts in Arts Administration programs and a Masters of Fine Arts in Theatre Management:
The programs do intermingle and students will often take classes both in the College of Fine Arts and the College of Music. When applying, please be sure to select the appropriate program for your particular interests and background.
