Katherine Underwood knew what she wanted to do for a career before she got to college. She just had to find the right program that blends her two interests: business and the arts.
She found what she was looking for in UBalt’s Arts Production and Management program. With courses focusing on arts production and performance, the connection of government and business to the arts, and technology’s impact on the arts, she feels she’s gaining all the skills she will need to achieve her goals.
“My main goal is to become a social media specialist for either a concert venue or an arena. I plan on going to graduate school and then work my way up by doing internships,” she says. “My overall goal is to be able to promote artists, bands and concerts.”
Katherine isn’t one to shy away from opportunity and has found several ways to get involved around campus, including serving as an orientation leader and working as a student assistant in the Rosenberg Center for Student Engagement and Inclusion. She also qualified to join the Helen P. Denit Honors Program, which unlocks more opportunities, including field studies, funded research, and immersive learning experiences.
“We're definitely the place to go if you like the smaller classes and you want to make sure that it's easy to form a relationship with not just other students, but also your professors,” Katherine says.
