Arts Policy & Administration


The Arts Policy and Administration programs in AAEP include a BA in Arts Management, a Minor in Arts Entrepreneurship, an MA in Arts Policy and Administration, and a PhD specialization. Arts Policy and Administration at The Ohio State University explores the intersection of arts and culture in policy, planning and administration. Innovative research seeking to support and redefine the positive ways in which the arts impact urban areas through economic development, tourism, and quality of life are explored in dynamic, hands-on classroom environments. Graduates of the Arts Policy and Administration programs become arts administrators in a variety of institutions; lead arts organizations; become arts entrepreneurs; work for government and non-profit institutions; and become faculty scholars at universities.
