IADS: Arts Management Track

The B.A. in Interdisciplinary Art and Design Studies (IADS): Arts Management Track is designed for students wishing to pursue a career in galleries, museums, auction houses, community arts centers, or other similar organizations.

The IADS: Arts Management Track pairs courses in art, design, art business, and art history with a minor in either Management or Leadership of Community or Non-Profit Organizations. This array of classes provides students with a solid grounding in both the art and the management side of arts businesses and organizations.

The IADS: Arts Management Track consists of 120 semester credit hours. All students complete the College of Visual Arts and Design Core program, acquiring general skills in art, design and art history. Students then select from a menu of introductory courses in specific studio art and design disciplines to gain more specific knowledge of 2 of these fields.

During the next stage of the degree, students take courses inside and outside the College of Visual Arts and Design. Within the college, they take a class in computer art, another in art and business, modern and contemporary art history courses, and, close to the end of their time at UNT, a research capstone class. Outside CVAD, students complete minor coursework in Management or Leadership of Community or Non-Profit Organizations emphasizing organizations and their management. Students are strongly encouraged to complete an internship during their programs of study.

To declare the IADS: Arts Track major, complete the degree plan application and turn it in, with your unofficial transcripts from the registrar’s office, to Dr. Donahue-Wallace in Art 224.
