About the Program
Marrying the core curriculum of Art Business and Arts Management with core courses offered by Claremont Graduate University’s Center for Information Systems and Technology (CISAT), the unique interfield Master’s program in Art Business + Information Systems & Technology was created to answer the needs of the growing “arts and technology” field.

Technology companies are increasingly interested in the arts and cultural space, as evidenced by Google’s Cultural Institute and Tilt Brush, or artist Jeff Koons’ partnership with Snapchat. At the same time, arts and cultural organizations are increasingly working within the digital realm, not just on exhibition and program media and marketing, but on ways of using big data to increase cultural equity, or on proprietary software to run complex production automation. This is the world in which graduates of this Master’s program will excel.

Students complete core courses in two degree programs: the MA program in Art Business/Arts Management and the MS program in Information Systems and Technology, as well as a handful of specialized and interfield courses. All of the courses prepare students for the Startup Studio – a capstone entrepreneurship course where students develop and pitch their own arts and technology initiatives to panels of artists, arts professionals, business leaders, and entrepreneurs from the Los Angeles community.

About Our Students
The MA in Art Business + Information Systems & Technology is designed for students with an interest in the application of computer and data science to the arts and culture field, or for students with an arts background who have a demonstrated interest and capacity for software engineering and information technology.
