Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Visual Arts and Design

The certificate in arts leadership is designed to provide graduate students in the visual arts and music with special preparation in arts leadership. Within a broad definition of leadership as “a process whereby an individual influences a group of individuals to achieve a common goal,” the certificate in arts leadership addresses four essential components: (a) opportunities to become a credible professional, (b) opportunities to become thoroughly grounded in the issues facing the arts and arts education, (c) opportunities to understand the broad spectrum of constituents with whom arts leaders must interact and (d) opportunities to develop specific leadership skills.
