The Arts Administration minor will:

Provide skilled individuals for the expanding arts/nonprofit sector whose increasingly complex institutions demand higher levels of sophistication and knowledge from their administrators.

Promote the interdisciplinary nature of the arts and sciences.

Encourage students to learn as they work and work as they learn. Through experiential learning opportunities, students will combine academic coursework and hands-on, relevant extra-cirricular opportunities on campus and in the community to become qualified to work in such areas as marketing, fundraising, operations, and general arts management.

Build relevant, transferable management and leadership skills for social service agencies, educational institutions, commercial arts industries, and other for-profit and non-profit sectors.

Expose students to issues of arts policy, cultural management, emerging technologies, and leadership and organizational development.
