Since 1974, the graduate Arts Management program at American University has trained students for careers in nonprofit performing and visual arts organizations, as well as government organizations on the front lines of national and international cultural policy. The goals of this program are to train students for success in the arts management jobs of the future—in a wide range of administrative, managerial and leadership positions—and to help them become effective advocates for the arts.
