Welcome to The Department of Arts Administration, Education and Policy at The Ohio State University!
Our Department’s legacy has been built on the distinction of its programs; the research, teaching, and service accomplishments of world-class faculty; and the diversity and aptitude of our outstanding students and alumni.
The Department’s undergraduate and graduate programs prepare future educators, researchers, and leaders in the areas of art education and arts policy and administration. Graduate students have the opportunity to specialize in our primary areas of focus: art education, cultural policy and arts management, or museum education; as well as interdisciplinary specializations, such as material culture studies, community arts, American Indian studies, disability studies, gender and sexuality studies, or a range of other university specializations.
We invite you to explore our website and our activities where the department promotes critical and informed engagement toward advancing the public interest with regard to opportunity, diversity, effective public policy, social justice, and creativity.
