Who should be an Arts Management minor

Arts Management is an ideal minor for students who like to be around the arts but are not necessarily interested in being an artist or performer. It's also a good choice for those who are preparing for artistic careers and want to have some training in the "business side" of the arts, so that they can manage their own careers, understand the organizations that hire artists, or even be prepared to accept administrative jobs between artistic gigs.

We use the term "arts management" very broadly. Students in the Arts Management Program may be majoring or minoring in other artistic disciplines such as studio art, music or theatre, but students majoring in English, history, communications, business and economics have also minored in arts management. Many arts management minors choose to major in an artistic discipline, but Communications, English, Humanistic Studies, and many other programs can pair well with arts management.
