Does the business side of the arts interest you? Are you thinking of opening a dance studio, working in the development office of a theatre company, or starting a youth theatre program? The Minor in Arts Administration is an introduction to the field. You’ll need to take at least 9 credit hours of classes in the arts (art, dance, music, theatre, musical theatre, theatre design or technology), as well as taking one of two foundational courses, either ART 496: Special Topics in Studio Art with the Topic of Gallery Management, or PERF 423: Performing Arts Management. After that, you will take 12 credit hours from a long list of possible classes to begin developing your knowledge of topics like grant-writing, accounting, social media marketing, leadership, and entrepreneurship. At least 12 hours of coursework in this minor must be at the upper division level.
Please note: ART 496: Special Topics in Studio Art with the Topic of Gallery Management is not offered every semester. PERF 423: Performing Arts Management is typically offered as an online class, usually in the fall semester.
