Why study Arts Management at UTSC?
- The University of Toronto Scarborough is home to the longest-running undergraduate Arts Management program in the country (active since 1984), with an ideal balance of arts and business courses, and a wealth of arts management-specific courses, that continues to be used as a model for other such programs around the world.
- Program courses are taught by noted practicing arts managers, leading researchers, award-winning artists, and top professors in the field.
- Students can graduate with both a Specialist in Arts Management and a Major or Minor in one of UTSC's highly-regarded programs of Art History, Music, Studio or Theatre within the same four years of study.
- High-quality field placements and other experiential education opportunities allow students to gain work experience, connect with people in the field for future employment, and practice and apply what they learn in the classroom for a deeper understanding of the subject.
- Every year, graduating students are offered positions in the very organizations in which they completed field placements or research for a course.
- Graduates of our program tend to seek out other graduates of our program when they are hiring.
- In general, our program graduates are in a position to enter the field at a higher rank and salary than those with more general arts or business degrees – all while doing rewarding work that brings them (and others) meaning and joy.
