Seminar - Foundations in Arts Entrepreneurship

This 3-credit course is designed as a primer in entrepreneurship for arts students and those in cognate fields. Students will examine the breadth of professional opportunities available in the Creative Economy and explore strategies for pursuing them. Based on these examinations, students will construct a personal mission statement, build an individualized portfolio of materials appropriate for professional development purposes, and begin a journal to formulate, collect, and grow creative venture ideas. Topics will include creative visioning, an introduction to the for-profit and non-profit economies, and relevant arts policy. Note: Foundations in Arts Entrepreneurship can only count towards the Professional Certificate, not the Core Certificate. If you took Foundations prior to Fall 2015, you may apply it to the Core Certificate. For the Campus Undergraduate Certificate in Arts Management, Foundations in Arts Entrepreneurship will still count as an elective.
