Live and Work at the Intersection of the Arts & Business

Do you love creating art, digital media, playing music or participating in theatre or dance? Are you also interested in making creative content for clients or managing a business? Would you like to engage audiences using media storytelling, digital publishing and media journalism techniques? If any of these questions speak to you then you will be a perfect fit in the Arts Technology and Administration Department. You will learn the creative skills and technology to make digital media or perform in one or more of the arts disciplines. You will also learn tools in management, marketing, entrepreneurship, communication and more preparing you to be more than a service provider but instead be a creative partner or administrator in an arts business.

The future is interdisciplinary and so should be your education!

"What the student-run ventures allow our students to do is to have the experience of running a business with real world risks and rewards. It gives the students a window onto the industry in a very hands-on kind of way so when they walk in and apply for a job at a production company, or something alike, they know they have the skills, they're confident and they can demonstrate it." ~ Laura Ledford, Dean of the College of Fine Arts

Which Student Run Arts Business Do You See Yourself Working In?

"A student-run venture is basically Performance Learning at its peak. You are a part of the business that is centered on its students. With a lot of these student-run ventures, it's very much learning on the y, it's an adaptation, it's you seeing a problem and pivoting. Being a part of these ventures is an awesome opportunity, and it's great because we're put in a position to succeed." ~ Daniel Rivera, Millikin Student
