Master of Science in Arts Administration
The Master of Science (M.S.) in Arts Administration is an independent degree program within Boston University's Metropolitan College. However we do share some courses and faculty with the graduate Administrative Studies degree program. General information and policies for Metropolitan College, as well as course descriptions for Administrative Studies courses, can be found in the Metropolitan College Bulletin. The program also emphasizes an interdisciplinary curriculum and we are committed to placing students from both the performing arts and the visual arts in many courses together. There is also the opportunity to specialize by taking courses specifically within certain discipline-based areas. The curriculum is largely focused on the nonprofit area, but it is also possible to substitute a limited number of courses with a commercial (for profit) orientation.
Arts Administration courses are taught largely by adjunct faculty who are working professionals in the Boston area. These faculty each have, on average, well over ten years of high-level professional experience in the arts.
