Minor in Arts Entrepreneurship

You have the talent to be a successful artist, but do you have the skills to start your own arts-related venture? If you can see yourself launching a gallery, creating your own dance company, running a piano studio, or kicking off an online digital music or media arts company, the Arts Entrepreneurship minor may be right for you. Finding a job as an artist is increasingly difficult for new graduates - so the Arts Entrepreneurship program prepares you to be your own artist.

This six-course minor provides an overview of how to develop and launch a new arts venture, either for-profit or nonprofit. You'll learn how to create work consistently, build a business plan, and identify funding to get your venture off the ground. No prerequisites required.
