The Minor in Arts Leadership and Administration is open to all Music, Theater, Dance and Art undergraduate students at Colorado State University. Interested students in other majors are encouraged to contact the Arts Leadership and Administration staff (leap@colostate.edu) to add the minor to their degree program. The curriculum is designed to enhance the skills of current undergraduates that are needed to be a successful artist beyond the studio, stage, classroom, therapeutic practice and performance hall.

Have you ever considered starting a business? All Arts Leadership and Administration Program students are eligible to enroll for the College of Business New Economy Venture Accelerator. This program provides entrepreneurship training, advisement, mentoring, and work space for student run ventures. Selected business ideas are incubated for a 12 month period to develop the idea and to better position it for a successful launch.

The LEAP Institute for the Arts offers college credit for semester-long internships hosted by local, regional, and national arts organizations. Our students have interned at Gretel Graphic Design (New York, NY), the Atlanta Ballet, Opera Fort Collins, OpenStage Theatre, KRFC, among others.
