A new degree for artists and crafters

While browsing The Storque this morning, I came across an article about MICA's new Master of Professional Studies in the Business of Art and Design (MPSBAD). David Gracyalny, dean of the School for Professional and Continuing Studies at MICA, talks about the program, which is slated to launch in the summer of 2011. He says, "The curriculum emphasizes the skills and knowledge needed - whether you hope to start, grow, or sustain an art or design related business - by combining online instruction, independent study, and brief residencies at MICA."

MICA is working collaboratively with Etsy to "clarify the goals of the MPSBAD and to create short-term programming focused on business skills for artists and designers..." A short survey was developed in an effort to gather input from folks like you and to ensure that the curriculum is fully realized and comprehensive. Read the full article here.
