Our fall quarter always brings a sense of excitement and renewal as we begin a new academic year. This fall, we welcomed one of our largest cohorts of Arts Administration & Museum Leadership students to campus and online. These students, from around the country and around the world, bring a wealth of energy, intellect, and curiosity to their roles as students and arts and cultural leaders. We can’t wait to see all the great things they’ll do.
We also have some exciting changes in our faculty roles as we continue to grow and evolve. Our esteemed colleague Dr. Danielle Rice will be retiring at the end of the academic year but will continue to teach for us on a part-time basis. Danielle was responsible for launching our Museum Leadership program and will continue to advise Museum Leadership students through the end of the year. Dr. Jean Brody, who created and directs our online program (the second oldest online graduate Arts Administration program in the county), will step down as our online program director at the end of this academic year in order to focus on teaching. This year, we are in the process of hiring a new program director and teaching professor to replace Danielle and to oversee our online program. We’ve received many talented applicants from around the country and plan to make a hire by the spring. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on our newest faculty member.
We’ve also begun interviewing prospective students for next year’s cohort, and we’re happy to speak with anyone who is interested in learning how our program can advance their career goals and build their professional networks. Applications for our campus and online program are now open, with an early admissions deadline of January 15th, which is the deadline to be considered for a graduate assistantship. This year we are also introducing a Spring cohort for online students studying either Arts Administration or Museum Leadership.
Applications for Online AAML Spring 2019 are currently under way.
We wish you all a wonderful fall season, full of both personal and professional accomplishments.
