Certificate in Arts Administration

Combining artistic ability and organizational leadership within a framework of stewardship, intercultural sensitivity, and arts advocacy, this certificate equips students to lead both non-profit and for-profit arts organizations in a variety of capacities. The quality of the Arts Administration Certificate is ensured with our currently contracted faculty and physical resources. By partnering each student with two different area arts organizations, students will be prepared to serve in an even larger number of contexts. Chattanooga houses a symphony, art museum, large community theatre, multiple granting/philanthropy organizations, and is more than capable of helping prepare our students for artistic administration.
