Arts Administration - Undergraduate Minor

The Arts Administration Undergraduate Minor will provide students an inclusive approach, connecting the study of business, marketing, and communication within the context of the arts. A student with an Arts Administration Minor increases the marketability of their degree upon graduation, enhancing the graduates' prospects for work in non-profit arts organizations.

The Core of this minor includes two existing undergraduate Arts Administration courses coupled with a third choice that helps to ensure that all students pursuing the minor have some basic preparation in marketing, public relations, and/or accounting.  Beyond the Core requirements, students select an additional 9 credits from the list of electives to complete the minor. There are 18 credits total required for the Arts Administration Undergraduate Minor.
