Overview

The MA in Arts Management provides students with the tools to create, facilitate, and evaluate work in the visual and performing arts. With applied skills in administration, finance, and programming, graduates of the Arts Management program emerge prepared for fulfilling careers in nonprofits and social enterprise, public agencies and foundations, arts collectives and creative communities.

A partnership between Claremont Graduate University and Sotheby’s Institute of Art provides unparalleled access to diverse leaders and institutions in LA’s thriving arts and cultural scene. Faculty from LA’s professional arts community complement the expertise of scholars from Sotheby’s Institute of Art, The School of Arts and Humanities, and The Getty Leadership Institute.

The core courses provide a foundation in business and management skills essential to careers in the creative industries. Our personalized, seminar-style learning environment begins with coursework in art management dynamics, public policy, evaluation, marketing and communications, fundraising, and strategic planning. The core is fortified by elective courses and extracurricular programs that speak to student passions and career goals. Arts Management students also benefit from access to the full curriculum of the MA in Art Business.
