From opera houses to art galleries, the world's arts institutions and organizations depend upon the skills and talents of those behind the scenes. Within the Arts Management program at R-MC, students engage with a comprehensive curriculum bringing together coursework in business, management, and the arts.

Major Options

In addition to providing a strong foundation in business and management, the Arts Management curriculum lets you choose your focus in a particular area of the arts—studio artmusic or drama.

Hands-On Experience

In fulfilling one of the requirements for this major, students in Arts Management participate in R-MC's academic internship program and step behind the scenes in arts organizations. Some recent internship placements have included the Children's Museum of Richmond, the Guggenheim Museum, the Richmond Symphony, Barksdale Theatre/Theatre IV, and the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen.

Beyond R-MC

Recent graduates of R-MC's Arts Management program have pursued careers in fields including museum event-planning and membership relations, advertising, development, public relations, health care, finance and investing.
