Arts Administration (AAD)

Arts Administration is a challenging and expanding field that is ready for Christian leadership. In keeping with the mission of Belhaven University to prepare men and women to serve Christ Jesus in their careers, relationships, and in the world of ideas, the Arts Administration degree program gives our students the knowledge, skills, and training necessary to administrate the business side of the arts in a variety of settings. Principles of management, human resource development, ethics, financial management, fund-raising, marketing, and law will be applied to theatre, dance, music, and the visual arts. Arts Administration students will have real-world experience through two required internships, ART 450 and 451.

The Arts Administration major requires 67 credit hours as follows: arts administration courses – 19 credits to include AAD 300, 310, 400, 450, 451, 490, and MUS 425 or THE 340; arts courses – 15 credits to include ART 215, THE 120, MUS 120, DAN 120, and PHI 275; ancillary courses – 9 credits to include ACC 213, BUS 414, BUS 418 and 412; fine arts concentration courses – 18 credits to include at least 12 hours in art, dance, music or theater, not to include ART 215, DAN 120, MUS 120 or THE 120 (course in the fine arts concentration to be determined by the department in which the students takes 12 hours); and 6 credits of elective courses.
