Imagine you went to work every day to connect artists with audiences, vision with reality, and money with mission. That's what arts managers do, playing an essential role in transforming minds, lives, and communities through creative expression. The best among them bring more than passion and good intent, they bring purpose, focus, and a jam-packed toolkit of essential skills and abilities.
For almost four decades, the Arts Management Program at American University has nurtured the toolkits and talents of extraordinary arts and cultural managers. Our graduates find work quickly, almost 100 percent within six months of receiving their degrees. And they make an impression early, rising into significant management roles at the world's best arts organizations.
