Degree Requirements

The Arts Administration Program offers a 60-point Master of Arts degree that requires two years of full-time graduate-level study. The core curriculum represents an unusual alliance among the faculties of Teachers College, Columbia Business School and Columbia Law School.

Courses are sequenced to provide the student with a well-rounded curriculum that builds both knowledge and experience. Core curriculum requirements include principles of arts administration in the performing and visual arts, cultural history, fundraising and development, labor-management relations, accounting, marketing, business policy, and arts law, including copyright and nonprofit incorporation. Courses in business and law are taken in cooperation with the Columbia Business School and Columbia Law School. Electives are chosen both in Teachers College and from the larger Columbia community. Browse courses through the Courses tab above.

A master's thesis and internship are also required for the Program.
