The UConn Arts Leadership and Cultural Management Online Graduate Certificate covers the fields of Dance Administration, Theatre Administration, Orchestra Administration, Visual Arts Administration, Performing Arts Administration, and Symphony Administration. The four 100% online courses in the program emphasize the critical areas of governance/leadership, budgeting/finance, fundraising, and marketing. The goal of the curriculum is to provide a deep conceptual context for the work of arts organizations coupled with practical classroom training. All of the Arts Leadership courses are delivered via an interactive and online platform (HuskyCT/Blackboard), enabling you to engage with students, faculty and content within an asynchronous environment. Asynchronous means that you can sign on anytime of the day to complete assignments or participate in discussions.
The program incorporates case studies, group work, project-based assignments, and guest lecturers that bring real-world knowledge to the classroom. In addition, our faculty members have worked for years in different capacities as arts administrators and will share their personal stories that showcase how they resolved specific challenges, turning failures into successes.
