The World Is Your Stage

M.A. in Arts Leadership
Our 15-month master's program trains you for leadership in the creative and performing arts.  The Janklow Program operates at the intersection of arts administration and social entrepreneurship. By combining interdisciplinary coursework with professional mentorships, competitive internships, and unique immersion opportunities, we make you more competitive in today's knowledge economy.  This program not only teaches the "how" of starting and managing an arts enterprise, it also addresses the essential question of "why", the connection between the arts and the community.  If you thrive on working in a fast-paced environment...traveling and dealing with creative people...and making a difference in your community, the Janklow Arts Leadership Program is for you.
