Learn about the Arts Leadership BA program through the experience of student storyteller Emilio Garcia-Corona. Emilio is a musician, filmmaker, actor, and arts leader who integrates creation, conversation, and cultivation into his work on and off the SU campus.
Degrees Offered: BA, Minor
The BA in Interdisciplinary Arts with Specialization in Arts Leadership is designed for students who want to create, manage, or administer creative activities within a specific arts discipline. The program combines classroom learning with an internship in a local arts organization so you’re ready for life after graduation, whether you want to run your own business as a working artist or work at a museum or theatre.
Professors Jasmine Mahmoud & Roxy Hornbeck discuss the focus of the BA program.
Throughout the program, students will prepare for artistic lives where they take control of their careers by understanding both the creative and business sides of being an artist and demonstrate responsibility when exploring the relationship between creativity, performance, artistic business opportunities, and social justice.
