Arts Management Program

The College of Charleston is one of the few schools in the Southeast and the only school in South Carolina to offer undergraduate study with a major and a minor in Arts Management. The College's program is uniquely situated in an environment with an active arts community. This provides students numerous opportunities for internships, career networking, and participation in special projects.

Over the last several years we have added an Arts Management concentration as part of the Graduate School’s Masters of Public Administration and a Graduate Certificate which focuses on preparing arts managers to meet the ever-changing demands placed on cultural institutions. Read more.


Students who intend to do their "for-credit" internship during the SPRING 2015 semester should contact Anja Kelley in the Program office immediately. For all necessary documents and information, visit the Internship page of the website.  The deadline for submitting paperwork/registering for your internship is the last day of drop/add. If you are still looking for an internship, visit the Internship Opportunities page for some ideas.
