Believe it or not, obtaining a degree in the liberal arts can actually make it easier for you to land a job. Each major within the School of Arts & Sciences carries with it a unique skill set that more employers say their looking for. Across industries, employers seek a combination of skills, interests and values that match their own.

Prepared for Anything

Forget about scrolling through a list of careers American Studies majors pursue. There are no rules. If you choose a major you’re passionate about, you are much more likely to discover and develop the tools that will ultimately help you find a rewarding profession.

Skills You Will Gain with the Arts Management Concentration

  • Integrate an artistic sensibility with functional business knowledge, skills and abilities
  • Creatively address complex business problems
  • Communicate in a highly effective manner
  • Initiate, lead and adapt to change
  • Engage in appropriate ethical and professional behavior
  • Understand and appreciate human, socio-economic, cultural and intellectual differences

Ready for Graduate School   

Successful involvement in an internship or research is one of the best predictors that a student will flourish in graduate school. With the arts management concentration, the opportunity to pursue research and practical experience, with the help of faculty, gives you a head start on the graduate school experience.
