The College of Creative Arts is the home and partner to innovative programs that cross disciplines, allowing our students to pursue an array of interests to augment and expand their knowledge base. Connecting disciplinary skills in the arts and design with areas such as business, community engagement, media, and others leads to the flexibility that can enhance both educational and career opportunities.
Given the challenges for artists and arts organizations to survive in an increasingly competitive business environment, the need for educated arts managers and entrepreneurs is increasing. The Arts Management and Entrepreneurship program is a synthesis of art, creativity, innovation, management, and entrepreneurship.
An interdisciplinary offering between the departments of Theatre and Kinesiology and Health (KNH), the Dance program offers students the opportunity to pursue a minor to develop the specialized skills necessary for dance performance.
