PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION OF THE MINOR AND STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

The Minor in Arts Management aims to provide CI students with an understanding of the artistic significance and the main management and marketing strategies and tools of cultural /educational institutions such as museums, theaters, art and entertainment foundations, and archives. This interdisciplinary minor will give the students the knowledge needed to recognize the way in which art, art history, communication and business/econ are intertwined within institutional environments and will prepare them with the training necessary to work in such institutions or to pursue graduate work in this field. The courses required for this minor are offered on a regular basis.

Student Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the Minor in Art Management, a student will be able to:
  • Demonstrate creative, critical thinking and analytical skills by identifying, analyzing, and assessing the political, social, technological, communicative, and economic impact on and connection to the field of arts management.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the contemporary culture and institutions through projects that address existing issues.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the implications of management in art institutions through projects and presentations that benefit the general public and local community.
  • Demonstrate effective collaboration skills by working successfully in groups (with CI and other students, CI staff and faculty, and outside professionals).
  • Demonstrate a solid understanding of the complex ethical issues of arts management, communication, business, and art/ art history.
  • Use and apply marketing theories and concepts to develop audiences, promote the nonprofit arts as a valuable social sector, and develop marketing plans and strategies for this sector.
HOW THE MINOR SUPPORTS THE UNIVERSITY’S MISSION AND STRATEGIC GOALS

The minor strongly supports interdisciplinary studies and not only prepares students for a growing job market in this field, but also provides them with a valuable foundation for a graduate program in arts management. This is a student initiated curriculum development: students interested in the relationships between art, business, and communication in the context of cultural institutions have suggested to Professor Irina D. Costache that CI create a minor in this field. The minor effectively seizes upon a key strategic opportunity within the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area.  CSUCI’s location in a region rich with cultural and artistic institutions (museums, galleries and alternative spaces, theaters, performance groups and venues, archives, not-for-profit arts and cultural organizations and foundations) provides an opportunity to use local resources and offers exciting possibilities for student internships, graduate studies and job placement.
