Arts Entrepreneurship Certificate

Return to Humanities Return to: Humanities

The Arts Entrepreneurship Certificate Program has been designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to create their own personal brand, to market themselves as artists, and to find gainful employment while they are working toward their eventual full-time career in the arts.

The courses can be taken at no extra cost, in as little as four semesters, while you complete your undergraduate degree. Some of the courses also fulfill general education requirements.

Total Credits: 18

  • The first four courses provide the basic business and promotional skills needed by an arts entrepreneur.
  • The Arts Entrepreneurship course will focus on personal branding as a means for AE students to bring their skills to bear on their planning for their own careers. In addition, this course will provide necessary background on fundraising in the arts.
  • Finally, students will earn three credits in a practicum experience chosen in consultation with their advisor.
