Given the challenges for artists and arts and cultural organizations to survive in an increasingly competitive business environment, the need for educated managers is increasing. The practice of Arts Management is a synthesis of art, creativity, innovation, management, and entrepreneurship. The minor will prepare students to balance aesthetic understanding with specialized skills in generating income, managing boards, stimulating public access, and sustaining the mission and vision of organizations whose primary purpose is the delivery, presentation, and preservation of arts and culture. These skills are applicable to arts councils, museums, community art centers, galleries, orchestras, theatres, and creative enterprises.
