The Minor in Event and Entertainment Management provides students with the theoretical and practical knowledge, skills and tools to become leaders in the event and entertainment industries. The minor prepares students to pursue careers in a variety of areas related to the event and entertainment industries, including fairs, festivals, meetings, trade shows, live performances within events, historical/cultural/educational exhibits, online events, hybrid events, digital media events, film events, weddings, social events and special events.

The Event and Entertainment Management minor is open to all undergraduate students at Temple, including School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management (STHM) students. However, STHM students may not do both a concentration and a minor in Event and Entertainment Management. STHM students may double count three major electives toward the minor. The other minor courses must come from free electives.
