Gallery goers enjoy the opening of IN YOUR FACE at the Vachon Gallery on October 10, 2015. Students in the Fall 2015 Social Issues Through the Arts class created mixed media installations that challenged didactiphobia, the fear of socially engaged art.
The MFA in Arts Leadership is a 2-year, 48-credit program that includes a required 9-credit Graduate Management Practicum.
The practicum is an internship where students work in local arts organizations applying their classroom learning to real world situations. Through this internship, students gain valuable practical experience and develop lifelong relationships with the arts community.
The MFA culminates in the Summary Project, a synthesis of academic study in a particular area of focus with the work produced during the community practicum experience.
