The Role of the Liberal Arts in the Education of Arts Administrators.
Padovano, Kathryn
This paper describes the proposed Masters of Arts degree in Arts Administration for Dowling College, a liberal arts college in Oakdale, New York. The purpose of the Masters of Arts degree in Arts Administration is to train art professionals to become administrative leaders in arts organization such as museums and other fine arts organizations. The proposed program provides art, history, sciences, education and business students with graduate course work and internship experience needed to become arts administration leaders. Similar programs in other institutions are discussed briefly. The internship portion of the program is unique with students spending five weeks at a museum, three weeks at a music institute, and three weeks at a historical museum site. The program is shared by the School of Education, the School of Business, and the School of Arts and Sciences: The Dowling Collaborative Model. The collaboration allows all schools to be partners in the development of potential arts administrators and to provide areas of expertise. Course requirements are listed. (EH)
