Arts Management Graduate Certificate

The Graduate Certificate Program in arts management serves professionals currently working in arts management or related fields who desire to expand their knowledge and skills, but may not be able to enter a full graduate program. In addition, it’s useful for those professionals who would like to try a few courses before deciding on a degree program.  The Arts Management Graduate Certificate Program is administered jointly by the Master of Public Administration Program and the School of the Arts. The program offers courses currently available in the Master's of Public Administration Program with an emphasis on preparing arts managers to meet the ever-changing challenges placed on non-profit cultural institutions. Classes are taught by award- winning faculty with academic training and significant experience in arts management.


"The Arts Management Certificate program has definitely given me a more well-rounded perspective of working in the field.  Combining my coursework with real life situations has been a natural development. Understanding the use of technology and arts management has been one of the most beneficial aspects, as well as the connections I've made simply by being in the classes and on campus."
