CCM’s Arts Administration Students Gain Experience With Prestigious Arts Organizations

Class of 2012 Front row L to R: Jenifer Thomas, Kristi Russell, LeAnne Anklan, Anna Backer, Zack Germain, Helene Herbert. Back row: Tyler Roe, Stephanie Saunders, Tony Zancanella, Taj Seyal, David Walker, Jason Hurwitz.

CCM’s Arts Administration students are posed each year with the challenge of finding an internship for the summer as part of their graduate degree. Based on the wealth of knowledge these students have gained in their studies, the students of the Class of 2012 have earned summer spots with the leading arts organizations in their fields of interest. Each student’s strong basis of understanding, stemming from dual-degree coursework in UC’s College of Business and CCM Arts Administration, assisted in earning these highly competitive internships.

The program has consistently prepared its students for real world experience, as is represented by the 100% job placement of last year’s graduating class! Throughout the country (and abroad!) this summer, CCM will be well represented by the Arts Administration students.
