This minor is designed to provide students with the entrepreneurial skills necessary to thrive in a global environment marked by the increasing cultural and economic impact of the visual arts. The program combines social and cultural awareness, nonprofit management and studio art courses to create an innovative program designed to meet the new challenges of the field. The mission of the Arts Management minor is to assist students in the development of management, marketing and financial skills while expanding their understanding of the critical role of art in community-building efforts as well as in social enterprise. Goals include envisioning the arts as an agent for education, social change, and as a tool for building community partnerships. In particular, the community service aspects of working in not-for-profit management will be emphasized in this minor. In the ART 2600  and ART 3200  courses, students will be encouraged to gain practical experience through internships and volunteer opportunities with local and national arts organizations.

Students must complete 18 credit hours in this declared minor, which includes nine (9) hours of art courses and nine (9) hours of business courses for those students who are not art or business majors*.
