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.
