Graduates of the Arts Administration program are prepared for careers in museums, theater companies, orchestras, choruses, and limitless other arts-related fields. Internships provide valuable hands-on experience, which improves students’ prospects with employers upon graduation. Off-campus internships are typically available at the Erie Art Museum, Erie Philharmonic, Erie Arts and Culture (formerly ArtsErie), Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, Chautauqua Institution, the Brooklyn Museum, and Christie’s in New York, among others.
The Academic and Career Planning Center (ACPC) assists students with career and life planning. You may schedule appointments with the ACPC staff to discuss career interests, skills, values, and goal setting, as well as how to find career information, internships, full-time jobs, and graduate schools. Students are encouraged to utilize the services of the ACPC.
