Minor in Arts Administration
Arts administration is an interdisciplinary course of study preparing students for work in arts organizations and creative industries. It merges your passion for the arts with the business needs of arts organizations.
Arts administrators work for art and cultural organizations such as orchestras, theatres, galleries, museums, arts festivals, arts centers, arts councils, regional arts boards, dance companies, and community arts organizations.
Responsibilities of an arts administrator may include:
- Managing the budget
- Supervising staff
- Writing grant proposals to generate income
- Advising the Board of Directors or senior management
- Keeping up to date on local, state and federal public policy
- Managing the facilities and equipment
- Program development and evaluation
- Recruit participants
- Negotiate contracts
- Create arts education activities
As a field of study, arts administration therefore combines coursework in the arts and humanities with business, policy, and communication.
Minor in Audio Production
The heart of the audio production minor is the yearlong course in Audio Production (MUSC 3052 and 3043), taught in the recording studio in Cowan Hall. Along with the audio production course sequence, students take two courses in Electro Acoustic Music (MUSC 2050 and 3050), Music Industry I (MUSC 2082), pre-requisites for those courses, and support courses in business. Full details are listed in the catalog. Although a music background is an advantage, it is not required in order to complete the minor successfully.
