LEAP Institute for the Arts believes that knowledge of the arts and cultures of our world are the foundation for career and life, opening possibilities for leadership, entrepreneurship, successful advocacy, and transformative public engagement. Students completing the minor are able to translate aesthetic and cultural knowledge into the concrete abilities needed in all sectors of the economy including private enterprise, non-profit leadership, and public administration. This Special Academic Unit in the College of Liberal Arts offers the Minor in Arts Leadership and Administration. The LEAP minor provides students with added skills for increased career options in positions of leadership in the arts, in the cultural domain, and beyond. Students learn the skills of management, entrepreneurship, leadership, and effective public engagement. Students will be prepared for career paths in creative industries, public policy, community organizations, social justice, or for creating and managing self-owned enterprises. Students complete 24 cross-disciplinary credits, 12 of which are upper-division.
To enroll in the Arts Leadership and Administration minor, students must have declared a major in Art, Music, Theatre, or Dance.
