Introduction

The Arts Enterprise and Cultural Innovation Minor is discipline specific to the visual and performing arts and design, with practice and critical theory incorporated from each department and creative discipline. The minor prepares students for an entry into a vocation and career that they design as creative professionals; based on their knowledge of self (person), knowledge of their practiced discipline (practice) and knowledge of the public spaces in which they will operate (public). There are seven courses, each four credits, for a total of 28 credits. At the conclusion of the minor students will integrate Person, Practice and Public into a student-generated culminating project that serves as a bridge to their post-undergraduate work. The concluding capstone has two separate tracks: a product/service track and an arts/performance track. Upon completing a major within the College of Fine and Performing Arts with a minor in Arts Enterprise and Cultural Innovation, students will possess the knowledge of their specific creative disciplines and the knowledge and abilities needed to develop and monetize their own unique creative attributes.
