Certificate Description: To offer MU graduate students, as well as post-baccalaureate students in the MU community, an officially recognized core of courses dealing with the development, business, and publicity aspects of a musical career. In today’s fine arts economy, an increasingly viable and popular model is the “portfolio career,” in which a person incorporates multiple roles (e.g. performer, teacher, advocate, manager, publicist, composer/arranger, etc.) rather than pursuing one narrowly defined career path. Contextualizing the vision, skills, and networking activities needed to achieve a viable arts career, while offering a combination of theoretical and practical career preparation for Mizzou students, is the overarching aim of the Certificate.
