Arts & Administration Program, University of Oregon

University of Oregon: The University of Oregon is an AAU research university with roughly 25,000 students. The UO Arts and Administration Program (AAD) resides within the School of Architecture & Allied Arts. The school is a close association of five departments and four programs: the Department of Architecture; Art (which includes digital arts); History of Art and Architecture; Landscape Architecture; and Planning, Public Policy and Management; and the Arts and Administration, Historic Preservation, Interior Architecture, and Product Design programs. At the graduate level, AAD offers a Master’s degree in Arts Management with concentrations in arts in healthcare management, community arts management, museum management/museum studies, and performing arts management. Across these areas of interest our students explore the role of media and communications technologies, concepts of community engagement, and elements of arts education toward the goal of becoming leaders in the field. AAD also offers a doctoral supporting area of study to UO School of Music and Dance doctoral students. At the undergraduate level, AAD offers a minor in Arts Management as well as university-wide arts and letters courses. An undergraduate major in Arts Management is currently in development. Other significant components of the program include the affiliated Center for Community Arts and Cultural Policy and the online publication CultureWork. Details of AAD faculty, students, program offerings, and activities can be found at http://aad.uoregon.edu/ as well as http://ccacp.uoregon.edu

The Museum Studies/Museum Management concentration of the Arts Management master’s degree at the University of Oregon prepares individuals for leadership positions in areas such as museum education, exhibition design, development, evaluation, and management. Students completing this concentration are qualified to work in a variety of museums: art, natural history, history, or science. This concentration advances a multicultural, cross-cultural perspective addressing both western and non-western concerns and values. Core courses provide critical perspectives and address practical, ethical, and theoretical concerns. The museum courses are taught by faculty and museum professionals in anthropology, art, art history, history, and arts administration. Courses incorporate practical experience in the University of Oregon’s two museums, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and the Museum of Natural and Cultural History, as well as museums in the community. Both of the University’s museums have recently completed major renovations. The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art has doubled in size. These institutions offer diverse practicum and internship opportunities for AAD students.

The Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program addresses the demand for professionally-trained museum personnel by offering a masters-level, multidisciplinary course of study sponsored by the Arts and Administration Program, the Department of Architecture, the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, the Department of Anthropology, and campus museum professionals.
