Certificate in Arts Entrepreneurship

The Undergraduate Certificate in Arts Entrepreneurship is meant to extend the study of an individual arts discipline. Students across the disciplines of Visual Studies (Art, Art History, Design, Digital Storytelling, Film), Music, and Theatre benefit from the business, marketing and organizational skills offered by certificate courses to develop the skills needed to build a thriving career in the many arts industries.

The Certificate in Arts Entrepreneurship provides an excellent foundation for those who want to become working artists, musicians, actors, or designers and for those who want work in arts management in businesses and non-profit organizations. It provides each student the unique opportunity to explore their own creative process and their ability to collaborate with others.

Availability: Aimed primarily at degree-seeking undergraduate students in the School of Music, Department of Theatre, and School of Visual Studies, this certificate is also available to students in other departments as an add-on to a degree or as a stand-alone certificate. All students who wish to declare the certificate should contact: Pete Zambito, zambitop@missouri.edu.
