Our Program

Humber’s Arts Administration and Cultural Management graduate certificate program is for those who wish to successfully combine passion for the arts, culture and heritage with business acumen and management skills. This distinctive program promotes diverse multidisciplinary performing and visual artistic expressions, supported by organizational competence in revenue development (earned and contributed), management of human resources (artists, volunteers, companies), planning (financial, strategic, special events, career), and communications (multi-platform, digital, marketing). The program is situated within the creative milieu of Humber’s renowned programs in theatre, writing, visual and digital arts, music, photography, animation, television, and film. The program’s hybrid components allow for flexible learning arrangements. Real-world experience is gained through varied field placements in commercial, government and not-for-profit arts and culture organizations, and collaborative capstone projects which demonstrate to employers the breadth of graduates’ abilities.
