Curriculum + Courses

Coursework

The curriculum is designed to help you acquire the knowledge and skills needed to lead creative people, projects, and teams. Core courses teach you the principles that are essential for creative projects. Elective courses allow you to more fully understand the demands, opportunities, and challenges of leadership that arise within and across particular creative genres and to focus on additional skills that you deem important for your career. Full-time students are registered for three to four credits of courses each quarter, which are a mix of the core and elective courses listed below and the professional development course. During the summer, students are enrolled in an online, three-credit internship course. Where an internship may not be feasible for a student, a thesis option is available.
