Graduate Program

Master of Arts in Arts Administration Class of 2011

The Master of Arts in Arts Administration can be completed in three or four semesters of course work and an internship.

All students begin course work in the fall semester, and this is followed by spring semester, a 280-hour summer internship, and a final fall semester of courses. Some students might opt for completing their internship during, or after the completion of, the fourth semester of course work.

Each semester of course work includes required courses plus an optional elective, which can be selected from the offerings of arts administration and other SPEA faculty, or from across the campus according to the student's interests and goals. If students choose to complete the degree requirements over the course of four semesters, core courses will be taken each semester and the elective courses will be taken during the final semester.

There are also opportunities to pursue a Minor in Arts Administration. Master’s students in the Jacobs School of Music can choose Arts Administration as an Outside Area.  An Outside Area in Arts Administration entails choosing six credit hours from the Arts Administration curriculum in consultation with the Program Director. As well, IU students in doctoral programs can obtain a Doctoral Minor in Arts Administration. A Doctoral Minor in Arts Administration entails choosing twelve credit hours from the Arts Administration curriculum in consultation with the Program Director. See Opportunities for Non-Majors for details.
