Connecting a range of College of Arts, Media and Design courses, this minor prepares students to work in nonprofit arts organizations such as theatre companies, concert venues, and performance centers. Students have an opportunity to develop valuable skills in artistic programming, marketing, organizational communication, public relations, community outreach, and the entertainment business.
Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated.
Students pursuing a performing arts administration minor may double count up to one course between that minor and the student's declared major and other minors. Should a student place out of a course in a minor it must be replaced with another course.
- No student may receive a theatre minor as a result of external transfer credit only.
- Music majors cannot use Performing Arts Administration (MUSI 2330) as a major elective due to double-counting policy outlined above.
