This minor prepares students for careers in the cultural industries, as independent artists or within arts organizations (i.e. museums, galleries, historic houses, theatre production, community art centers, event planning, marketing, etc.) Students will develop and demonstrate an understanding of the practical and ethical aspects of work in the cultural sector and cultural institutions, both in Canada and internationally. The experiential component allows students to gain practical experience in the field of their choice. The minor in Arts Management guides students to an understanding of the pertinent questions at stake in today’s entrepreneurial and diverse cultural environments.
