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.
