Minors in Arts Leadership and Business

Undergraduate Minor

The College of Fine Arts offers a minor in Arts Leadership and Business (ALB) which provides students with an educational foundation to explore current and emerging professional practices. The ALB minor provides a foundation to understanding the economic contributions the arts and artists make to local and state economies. Faculty and instructors have extensive professional experience in their fields, offering students exposure to their arts organizations and businesses, as well as professional networks and resources. The ALB minor has the dual purpose of providing students with practical business and leadership skills in preparation for entry-level positions in the creative economy or further study in any number of nationally known graduate programs in arts administration.

The core for the Arts Leadership and Business minor is 15 credit hours. Each of the five core courses uses a problem-based and/or case study approach to gain real-world exposure to current arts management structures. Electives are offered through topics, problems, and investigation courses that rotate offerings that explore entrepreneurship and arts administration issues. In addition, the ALB minor requires a rigorous internship with an arts business or organization to gain work training under the mentorship of a professional arts leader. Through course work and internship opportunities, students are better prepared to make informed decisions about career choices in the complex environment of the creative economy.
