AAEP students in D.C.

The Ohio State University Department of Arts Administration, Education and Policy prepares educators and policy makers in the areas of art education, arts policy and administration. The department’s legacy has been built on the distinction of its programs; the research, teaching, and service accomplishments of world-class faculty; and the diversity and aptitude of students and alumni. 

In the global economy, creativity is essential. The process of making art—whether it is written, performed, sculpted, photographed, filmed, danced or painted—prepares children for success in the workforce not simply as artists, but all professions.

Arts Administration, Education, and Policy in the Community

Ohio State AAEP students joined arts advocates from across the country in Washington, DC for the annual Arts Advocacy Day March 19–21, 2017. Arts Advocacy Day also provided the opportunity for our students to receive advocacy training from experts and put that training into practice. Our students met with our members of Congress in support of issues like arts education policy, the charitable tax deduction and funding for the National Endowment for the Arts.
