Arts Concentration (C.A.G.S.)


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments & Programs

The Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) in the Arts is a post-master’s level certificate that allows a graduate student to pursue an area of concentration within the arts. This individually designed program is based on the educational goals and needs of the student and is planned with support from an academic advisor. It comprises 30 graduate credits beyond the Master’s Degree, nine of which may be transferred from another institution if they are post-master’s credits, are relevant to the program concentration, and are approved by the advisor. The goal of the CAGS Arts Concentration is for classroom teachers, art teachers, all educators, artists, administrators, and others to collaboratively explore how to teach and inspire students of all ages learning with and through the arts. In supportive environments, students engage in the creative process; reflect on cultural and aesthetic perspectives; work individually and collaboratively to develop and practice innovative and interdisciplinary pedagogies; and address social justice and sustainability through an arts lens. This program is designed to expand creative boundaries and examine the role of the arts in developing expressive and critical voice in the classroom. Partnerships with the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, the Integrated Arts Academy in Burlington, the Fleming Museum at the University of Vermont, and Burlington City Arts enrich the Arts concentration.
