Taking Individual Courses

If you need a course or two for professional development purposes or to acquire skills, you are welcome to register for a single class. All classes (with the exception of Cultural Equity in the ArtsCultural Policy and Advocacy, and Foundations in Arts Entrepreneurship) have Introduction to Arts Management as a prerequisite, but there are certain circumstances that allow us to waive the prerequisite.

In the case of Board Development, Financial ManagementGreening Your Nonprofit Arts Organization, and Strategic Planning, we will waive Introduction to Arts Management if you are planning to take only this course. Contact us at aes@acad.umass.edu or 413-545-2360 for the next steps.

For all other courses, this prerequisite can be waived if you have a minimum of three years of professional experience in an arts management capacity. Please email your resume with your request and aes@acad.umass.edu. If you have any questions, contact us at aes@acad.umass.edu or 413-545-2360.
