Would you like to add an entrepreneurial skillset to your creative degree? The business, marketing and organizational skills you develop here can provide an administrative enhancement, moving your creative background toward a sustainable career.
Arts entrepreneurship is an emerging transdisciplinary field that harnesses the skills and mindset of the entrepreneur to empower artists to create work that is meaningful, sustainable and oriented to community and market need. Students across art, dance, design, film, music and theatre disciplines benefit from the business, marketing and organizational skills offered by certificate courses as applied specifically to and within the arts.
All students are required to meet general university admission requirements:
Find and apply for relevant scholarships.
ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.
The certificate in arts entrepreneurship, meant to extend the study of an individual arts discipline, is available only to current students with a major within the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.
Students may be admitted to the certificate program upon completion of HDA 252 Foundations Arts and Design Entrepreneurship with a grade of "B" or better (scale is 4.00 = "A") and an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher. Students must submit an application to the Herberger Institute Office of Student Success. Herberger Institute students meeting the course and GPA requirements may enroll in the certificate, and a Herberger Institute advisor will add the certificate plan code to the student's record.
A student pursuing an undergraduate certificate must be enrolled as a degree-seeking student at ASU. Undergraduate certificates are not awarded prior to the award of an undergraduate degree.
