Arts Administration Minor

The Arts Administration minor includes courses in the arts, business, and public relations. The goal is to provide students with the basic knowledge and skills they will need for working with cultural, performing and visual arts organizations. Arts Administration may also lead to opportunities that include event planning, arts facilities management, public relations, marketing and grant writing for arts or non-profit organizations.
