About University of North Carolina at Greensboro
The UNCG College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) is a vibrant arts community that is active on campus and deeply embedded in the city, state, and region. The CVPA serves approximately 1,500 undergraduate and graduate majors with a full-time faculty of over one hundred, making it one of the largest schools of its type in the South.
The UNCG Arts Administration Program is in its fourth full year and is rapidly growing. It is the only undergraduate Arts Administration Program in the University of North Carolina system. There are currently over 100 majors and approximately 30 minors, up 42% from a year ago.
The Arts Administration Program seeks to develop and educate students who are prepared with the skills, knowledge, and mindset to shape the future of the arts. The Arts Administration Program is currently an undergraduate program, offering a BA in Arts Administration and a Minor. It is interdisciplinary, with students interested in careers in visual art, dance, music, theatre, and interdisciplinary arts in both the non-profit and for-profit sectors. 37% of Arts Administration students are double majors. The Arts Administration Program works closely with the other Schools in CVPA (Schools of Art, Dance, Music and Theatre), the Bryan School of Business and Economics, and other related Departments across campus.
Starting in the 2019-20 academic year, the Program is creating an Art Museum Studies concentration in partnership with the Art History Concentration in the School of Art.
