Suggestions for students wanting to work for:
* nonprofit museums
* house museums
* art galleries
* symphonies and theatres
A minor in an arts discipline and two internships with arts organizations are strongly recommended. One internship should focus on technical, stage management, or performance areas, and the second internship should focus on management within an arts organization. You must learn about the art form and how to talk to artists, as well as learn how the arts organization operates.
Courses below seem to be best if your interest is in arts organizations; however, they are not required. You may take any of the courses approved for General Education and for the Cognate in the Organizational Communication major.
