Arts Management Minor

Phone: 843.953.6301

Karen Chandler, Director

An Arts Management minor prepares students to become art managers, members of arts organizations and work with artists. This minor is especially relevant to students majoring in an arts discipline who need to develop skills to manage their career or work with arts organizations. It is also relevant to Business School majors who have an interest in relating their business skills to the arts industry. The School of Humanities and Social Sciences majors (Communication, Political Science, and Psychology, etc.) are also often involved in careers that relate to arts management.

The courses emphasize management, organizational skills and arts disciplines relevant to the unique world of the visual and performing arts industry. Internships and participation in the School of the Arts and community arts organizations reinforce classroom experiences. Professional artists and art industry leaders augment the perspective of the courses.
