The LEAP Institute for the Arts at CSU opens possibilities for career and life through visionary leadership, creative entrepreneurship, impassioned advocacy, and public engagement through a deeper understanding of arts and culture. This Special Academic Unit in the College of Liberal Arts is pleased to offer a minor in Arts Leadership and Administration.
The interdisciplinary minor seeks to augment a student’s major by broadening their skill set and career options. Classes are designed to provide the students the following: leadership, business and entrepreneurial skills that will enhance their ability to be competitive in the 21st century job market, arts leadership and advocacy skills that will cultivate an audience for the present and future of the arts, real-world experience in partnership with arts organizations and an environment that allows for creative thinking and entrepreneurial efforts that may lead to new collaborations in the arts and entertainment industries. Through this interdisciplinary minor, students will prepare themselves for career paths in or out of the creative industries, and redefine what success in an arts career looks like for them. The minor is 24 cross-disciplinary credits, 12 of which are upper-division.
