University of Oregon

Arts and Administration Program


Due to program realignment and restructuring, the Arts and Administration program is in the process of merging with the Department of Planning, Public Policy and Management

As part of this merger, undergraduate and graduate programs of study are being modified. Information on this website will be updated through summer, 2017. For more information, please contact

The Arts and Administration Program at the University of Oregon informs cultural sector administration, policy, research, and education. We prepare and inspire leaders based on the belief that professional arts managers must be familiar with the social, cultural, economic, political, technical, and ethical contexts in which the arts flourish.

This dynamic program attracts a diverse national and international student group. Graduates of the program find high-level administrative positions with museums, community arts organizations, performing arts organizations and venues, public agencies serving the arts, and a variety of other arts and cultural organizations.
