Arts and Cultural Management

This is particularly unique at MacEwan. It allows students to provide practical support that is essential for a successful theatre or arts company. The two-year program consists of in-class or online learning as well as on-site field placements. This program helps to prepare students for administrative and management roles in the creative and cultural sectors. As such it is a complementary minor for students in the Fine Arts majors, but is available to any student in the BA or BA Honors program in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Alberta with an interest in the field.
