Become part of the next generation of influential arts and entertainment leaders

The newly established Master of Arts program in Arts Leadership in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Houston takes an entrepreneurial approach to preparing creative professionals to launch, administer and maintain arts organizations of all sizes. The degree program provides advanced study in the management and promotions of arts organizations across artistic disciplines.

Students enrolled full-time can complete the degree requirements in two years. Those who wish to continue full-time or part-time employment during the day may complete this program as courses will be offered during evening hours.

All students will be required to complete internships with established, professional, arts organizations in in the greater Houston area. They will have access — through guest lecturers, workshop and panels both in class, and through the Center for Arts Leadership — to interact with local and national leaders of distinction in the fields of arts, entertainment and culture.

The Master of Arts program in Arts Leadership develops and cultivates the next generation of influential leaders in the fields of arts and entertainment.
