The University Senate approved this revised minor in Arts Administration on September 10, 2018. We anticipate that students will be able to declare this minor by advising week of fall, 2018, and start taking course in the spring of 2019.

The Arts Administration minor introduces students to the fundamentals of planning, financing, and managing live performing arts events.  Required practical experience in our campus Ticket Office and our six theatres and concert halls makes this minor a valuable enhancement to bachelor’s degrees in the arts, business, or communications.  Required: 21 credits

The Arts Administration program is closely allied with the university’s Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center, a multi-arts center with four performance halls and two art galleris, offering extensive internship and employment opportunities for qualified students. Through a combination of the academic course work, internships and the extracurricular opportunities available on campus, students become qualified to work in such areas as marketing, fund raising, operations, and general arts management. A number of students have also gone on to successfully pursue graduate study in the field.
