Performing Arts Administration, Minor

Reflecting our commitment to creative entrepreneurship, this interdisciplinary CAMD minor prepares you to work in non-profit arts organizations such as theater companies, concert venues, and performance centers. Students develop practical skills in artistic programming, marketing, organizational communication, public relations, and the business of entertainment.

Students in the minor choose an introductory path through music or theatre and share one foundational course in Performing Arts Administration uniting the two disciplines. They can choose two additional courses from 10 electives including one online course in Arts and Culture Organizational Leadership.
