Minor in Arts Administration

Does the business side of the arts interest you?  Are you thinking of opening a dance studio, working in the development office of a theatre company, or starting a youth theatre program?  The Minor in Arts Administration is an introduction to field.  You’ll need to take at least 9 credit hours of classes in the arts (art, dance, music, theatre, musical theatre, theatre design or technology), as well as taking one of two foundational courses, either ART 496: Special Topics in Studio Art with the Topic of Gallery Management, or PERF 423: Performing Arts Management.  After that, you will take 12 credit hours from a long list of possible classes to begin developing your knowledge of topics like grant-writing, accounting, social media marketing, leadership, and entrepreneurship. 
Please note: ART 496: Special Topics in Studio Art with the Topic of Gallery Management is not offered every semester.  PERF 423: Performing Arts Management is an online class, typically offered in the fall semester.
We highly encourage students minoring in Arts Administration to contact the Department of Theatre & Dance Advisor, Carol Jordan, carol.jordan@wku.edu, 270-745-8942, for assistance in navigating this minor.
