Special Events Management (Minor)

Home / Programs / Minor / Special Events Management

The minor program in special events management is designed to offer students a solid understanding of special events programming and management. In addition to the two-tiered special events course, which provides basic and advanced instruction as well as experiential learning opportunities through event production, students are able to select electives to meet their interests.

The minor allows students enrolled in other undergraduate programs at ASU to broaden their educational experiences. Students from such various disciplines as business, communication and many others find this program a beneficial supplement to their existing program.
