Arts Administration Departmental Certificate

This program is available at the Springfield - Leffel Lane location.

The Arts Administration departmental certificate is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in arts administration. General education courses in theatre, as well as arts administration, acting, and stagecraft provide a broad overview of the arts. Accounting, marketing, and management courses will give the students the business background they need to succeed in arts management. Many of the courses needed for this certificate overlap those required in Management and/or Theatre Arts, so students can apply many of the following classes to the requirements for those programs.
