Bachelor of Arts in Art Management

When you walk through a museum, see a show at a theater or festival, visit a library, or even hear a song -- a team of dedicated art management professionals was behind the artist to help them shine. With an art business degree, you can become advanced in the areas of art history, studio art, graphic design, and photography while also taking classes in business law, museum and curatorial studies, and macroeconomics. 

The Bachelor of Arts in Art Management at Albertus combines a liberal arts core curriculum and an interdisciplinary blend of management, artistic, business and communications courses. The program enables students to develop their understanding and expertise in the art industry and prepares them to assume administration and management positions in cultural organizations dedicated to the visual and performing arts, as well as pursue careers as artists themselves.

Faculty Spotlight

Meet Jerry Nevins, M.F.A.

Jerry Nevins is a professor and chair of the Visual and Performing Arts at Albertus.

“A student-centered approach in the classroom is the only effective way I know to enable the student to strive for personal excellence. Along with the necessary studio courses, future artists should be broadly educated in the humanities. Philosophy, history and language provide a firm foundation for and reason to be an artist.”

Professor Nevins teaches courses in Graphic Design, Ceramics, and Photography.
