The College of Charleston’s Arts Management program draws students from a wide range of backgrounds, even those whose aspirations aren’t necessarily focused on the nonprofit sector. This “crossover appeal” is what attracted alum Dana Dickie ’10 to the program in the first place.
“When I started at College of Charleston in the Fall of 2006, I was originally planning on majoring in Economics and minoring in Arts Management,” Dickie says. “At the encouragement of my Honor’s College mentor, I decided to double major in both. I’m so thankful I did!”
The Arts Management program, she says, offered her the opportunity to “combine business and creativity.” It’s a combination that has certainly worked out well for her career, in her role as a Royalty Coordinator for a music label in Nashville.
