“With passion for arts and music, a lot of my life has revolved around participating in the arts community. I have played with many professionals from CNY Jazz, I am a part of the Tri-M Music Honors Society, and I have met quite a number of fellow visual artists online. Through this program, I want to further my education by learning what goes into the management and promotion of the arts, and essentially giving back to the arts community.” Connect on LinkedIn.

Elizabeth Streeter 
Pursuing: Master of Science
Undergraduate Degree: B.A. in Theatre, Keene State College 

I decided to work on getting my masters in an attempt to get out from backstage (kind of). After working as a technician for a few years, I decided I wanted to move into a role where I could have a better idea of the process before a show got to the production team.” 

Vanessa Teamoh
Pursuing: Master of Science
Undergraduate Degree: B.A. in Cultural Studies, SUNY Empire State College

I chose Le Moyne’s Art Administration program because it felt like the right fit for me. The instructors are knowledgeable, and with the program being on the smaller side, you can get to know your peers more. I felt the program would provide me with the right tools to pursue a career in the arts, which is my biggest passion.”

Margot Vangel
Pursuing: Master of Science
Undergraduate Degree: B.A. in Theatre, Ohio Wesleyan University

I'm excited to have the opportunity at Le Moyne to broaden my understanding of the inner workings and details of nonprofits. It is my goal to take these new lessons back with me out into the field to continue to push for making the theater a more adaptable and accepting place.

“When I learned of the M.S. in Arts Administration, I was immediately intrigued.  The focus on applying management concepts in a non-profit environment, in addition to the course work, aligns with my work in Advancement here at Le Moyne.  Not only is the Arts Administration program a good fit in terms of my interests and relevance to my current position, but it also provides me an opportunity to apply what I learn to what I am doing on a daily basis.” Connect on LinkedIn.
