Morehead State University’s
Department of Art and Design will unveil its new arts entrepreneurship minor
that will allow students to obtain a valuable skill set. The minor will be offered in
the fall semester 2014.
The arts entrepreneurship minor is
the only minor of its kind in Kentucky. It is built on the success of the
department’s arts administration minor that was implemented in 2012, which
focused on management, finance, public relations, marketing and legal
This 21-credit-hour program will
have three core courses, one of which is a practicum. It focuses on small and
micro business management skills, personal empowerment and consultancy work. The
minor complements a variety of degrees in the humanities (art, music, theatre,
etc.) and will give students the skills needed to create their own market-based
opportunities in the arts.
The arts entrepreneurship minor also
is available to any student interested in setting up their own micro business
or collaborating with nonprofit organizations.
“I perceive the arts
entrepreneurship minor as a type of boot camp. They leave college with a very
strong skill set that makes them highly employable,” said Jennifer Reis, assistant
professor of art. “I feel like this is not only going to benefit the college
and our University, I also think it’s going to benefit our region.”

arts entrepreneurship minor, contact Reis at 606-783-5446 or visit www.moreheadstate.edu/arts_entrepreneurship/.
