Arts Management at MCLA
MCLA is one of the few institutions of higher education in the nation to offer an undergraduate degree in Arts Management. The Arts Management curriculum provides total immersion in the business aspect of the arts and is enhanced by unlimited opportunities for internships and learning outside of the classroom in the exceptionally rich cultural economy of the Berkshires. Using an interdisciplinary approach to Arts Management, MCLA students receive a strong background in art, music, theatre, grants and fundraising, business administration, public relations, and social media.
MCLA is also home to the Berkshire Hills Internship Program (B-HIP),
which provides students an opportunity to gain hands on experience
with world class institutions such as Tanglewood, MASS MoCA, and the
Williamstown Theatre Festival, in our own backyard.
