What led you to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern? I chose to enroll in the MSLCE program at Northwestern because of the generalized focus within the program. I enjoy that it allows students to explore different creative enterprises. I like that the students come from lots of different backgrounds, and have different interests and talents. I also like that the program teaches what goes on behind-the-scenes in arts organizations. I look forward to learning from both faculty and the other students.

What are you most looking forward to about the MSLCE program? I am most excited for the site visits and the internship experience.
