Germany and France: Visual and Performing Arts Administration

ARVA-GE 2215
June 2020 Berlin/Paris  3 credits

This course offers the student, whether graduate or arts administration practitioner, an intensive experience in learning about cultural policies and arts management practices in at least two European countries.  The Arts Administration Study Abroad is comprised of a series of lectures, site visits, case studies, discussion sessions and presentations related to both visual and performing arts venues.  Issues change from year to year as cultural policies develop in chosen administrations and with policy makers; students will present case study analyses on the basis of their lectures and on-site visits.
