collaboration - partnerships - career success icon marylhurst universityArt management careers vary and include a diverse range of subject areas from photography to advertising. Based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the career outlook for craft and fine artists is expected to grow by three percent in the next decade, which is slower than the average for all career types.

Even though art careers as a whole may not be growing as rapidly as other career fields, those with a bachelor’s degree tend to earn higher salaries. For example, an art director position, which requires a bachelor’s, had a median income of just over $88,000.

Graduates of Marylhurst’s B.A. in Art program find themselves prepared for art management careers in galleries and museums as an art dealer, art critic or museum curator.

  The B.A. in Art program accepts students each term (fall, winter, spring and summer) and is now accepting inquiries and applicants for 2017.
