Hey Transfer Students!

Heard of Cultural Entrepreneurship yet?

You will!

Cultural Entrepreneurship (CUE) examines how cultural products (art, theatre, literature) and cultural activities (sports, music, food, film events) have an impact on the growth of local, national, and global economies.

And…UMD offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in this new, creative and really exciting interdisciplinary program!

Cultural entrepreneurship scholars study the impact of culture on economies, and develop new strategies for enhancing local livelihoods by creative, sustainable, socially responsible ways of producing income through cultural activity.

The major provides training for students interested in leadership roles in the creative economy, and guides them towards developing their own creative business enterprise, from business plan to implementation.

Sasha Miller and Jake Wargin are two CUE students here at UMD. Check out this video on their CUE journeys…past and future!

  • Digital and print media production
