Minor in Entertainment & Arts Management

About the Minor

Drexel's Entertainment & Arts Management (EAM) minor program gives students an introduction to the challenging industry of entertainment and arts business. The selected curriculum gives students a basis in entertainment finance, promotion, business planning, intellectual property rights, cultural literacy, and artist representation. Students in Drexel’s EAM minor do not choose concentrations but rather take a core selection of classes and then select nine hours of electives in order to customize their learning.

The EAM minor is open to all undergraduate students in the Drexel University system; no prerequisites are required but departmental approval is needed.

Interested students should contact EAM professor Dr. Brea Heidelberg at bmh29@drexel.edu to schedule a meeting to discuss adding the EAM minor.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
