The Arts Administration: Performing Arts minor helps students learn to collaborate through an interdisciplinary approach to the business of the performing arts. The arts world is highly collaborative; our program produces successful arts managers who can creatively problem solve within this environment. Students hear diverse perspectives from faculty and work alongside professional arts managers through internships. This robust minor is the perfect complement to a major in theatre arts, music, communications and media, or even business, and is essential for the student planning a career in arts management.
