Updates to the 2013–15 College Catalog:

Effective Fall 2014:

  • The formerly crosslisted AMG 2085/Arts and Entertainment in Economics is now offered only under the originating discipline’s prefix, ECO.
  • The course number for Arts Management Internship (formerly AMG 3980) is now AMG 3995.
  • AMG 4880/Senior Seminar in Arts Management (2 credits) is discontinued.
  • The senior project (formerly AMG 4992, two semesters, 6 credits total) is now SPJ 4990/Senior Project I and SPJ 4991/Senior Project II, 4 credits each.

Effective Fall 2013:

  • The arts management elective may be 3 or 4 credits (under Junior–Senior Years, #5; formerly listed as 4 credits). This changes the credit total for the major from 42 credits to 41–42 credits.
