Arts Administration - Minor in Arts Administration

Program Info
The Arts Administration minor, a 24 credit hour program at Morehead State University, provides management skills in the arts and non-profit sector in preparation for future career opportunities.
 
Arts Administration is a viable and expanding career option for fine and performing artists who seek alternative professional arts opportunities in addition to performance and exhibition.  Students with majors in the humanities, education, and business would also benefit from the program. The minor trains students to manage organizations and programming focused on enriching lives culturally, educationally, and socially for the greater civic good.  Arts organizations serve and develop communities through shared experiences, life-long learning, and open and expansive dialogue on unfamiliar issues and cultures.
 
In addition to focusing on management, finance, public relations, marketing and legal coursework, the minor through its “Intro to Arts Administration” course develops foundational knowledge and skills relating to arts and social sector non-profit organizations.  These skills include community organizing and advocacy; grant writing and fundraising; volunteer development and board relations; educational, cultural programming and access; strategic planning and governance structures; and organizational and program assessment.
 
Professional practice is embedded into the minor, including field experiences through two practicums tailored to students’ interests, service learning, and instructional interaction with arts administrators are integral elements to the program.
