Arts Administration Minor

Fredonia offers an interdisciplinary minor in Arts Administration, which introduces students to the fundamentals of planning, finance, and managing performing arts organizations and events.  Required courses in grant writing and fundraising; financial accounting; arts advocacy and leadership; performing arts organization and management; arts administration practicum or internship; AND practical experience in the campus Ticket Office.  Elective courses round out this minor.  All together, this makes this minor a valuable enhancement to bachelor’s degrees in the arts, business, or communications. Required: 24 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 galleries, offering extensive internship and employment opportunities for qualified students. Through a combination of the academic coursework, internships, and extracurricular opportunities available on campus, students become qualified to work in such areas as marketing, fundraising, operations, and general arts management. A number of students have also gone on to successfully pursue graduate study in the field.

For more information on the minor, for advisement, or to declare the minor, please contact Marc Levy, Arts Administration Advisor, Mason 1144.
