Quality Education in the Benedictine Tradition
I love the monastery, the monastic life and that I can teach at the college and be around the wonderful students who bring even more joy to my life.

Visual Arts Learning Objectives:
Students who successfully complete the Arts Administration major with a Visual Arts concentration will receive a solid background in business, an understanding of various art organizations, and be uniquely qualified to administer various arts and nonprofit organizations. Higher level positions are given to those with master degrees, so it is recommended that graduates of the program consider obtaining a graduate in business or arts administration.
This is an interdisciplinary major. Some courses required for this major are in different departments or divisions.
