Meadows has a new minor in Arts Entrepreneurship.
The following addresses some of the frequently asked questions about this course of study:
- Are their prerequisites for classes?
There are a small amount of courses that require pre-requisites, but this is the exception, rather than the rule. Look to the course description. If it does not mention prerequisites, then assume it does not require them.
- How do I minor in Arts Entrepreneurship?
- Will this help me make a living?
There are no guarantees in a arts career. However, entrepreneurial skills can increase one’s chances of making a living in the arts.
- What’s the learning method?
Courses vary in teaching approach. Some courses are theoretical, while others are experientially-based. Generally speaking, experiential learning techniques are encouraged, whenever possible.
- Can I take single courses or do I have to be a minor?
Presently, there is no major in Arts Entrepreneurship. One can elect to sign up for the minor, to take courses as electives or one can take courses to meet various university curriculum requirements.
- Will this course help with my University Curriculum needs?
All SMU students who are in the Freshman or Sophomore classes as of 2012, are required to fulfill the new university curriculum requirements (UC). Some of the Arts Entrepreneurship courses, such as Creating an Arts Venture Plan, meet requirements of the UC, in this case, a Capstone course. A number of courses are presently applying for recognition as courses aiding in UC requirements. If you have questions, contact Director of Arts Entrepreneurship, Jim Hart at email@example.com.
- I want to take a class, but will timing interfere with my major?
Meadows School of the Arts offers rigorous artistic training in a wide variety of mediums. Each discipline requires its students to fulfill individual departmental requirements for majoring, each of which has different calendar demands. This said, we are striving to make Arts Entrepreneurship courses as widely available for the various majors, especially those with especially intensive schedules such as Theater, Dance and Music, as possible.
