Bringing together leadership, planning, marketing and creativity in an events and facilities administration minor.

A minor in events and facilities administration will strengthen students’ preparation to work in careers that involve event planning and facilities administration (political events, celebrations, education, promotions, commemorations, trade shows, conferences, exhibitions and conventions). Students earning this minor will demonstrate leadership characteristics and make decisions based on integrating knowledge of financial, human resources, promotion and event administration principles.

The curriculum provides students with research-based best practices, knowledge, skills and understanding for planning events and managing facilities where events take place. More specifically, this minor will provide students with a deeper understanding of what it takes to plan and promote successful events, with particular focus on events and facilities administration, facilities management and design and marketing.

Undecided or still deciding on a major and future career?

If you are uncertain about your major and have questions about career planning, you are not alone. Choosing a major or career can be a very difficult decision. The exploratory studies program may be a good fit if you are unsure of your major and career focus. Entering the university in the exploratory studies program will help you gain confidence and valuable insights on majors and minors available at SDSU and future career choices. 

In addition, FOCUS 2 Career, a self-guided assessment, education and career planning program, will help you reflect on your values, interests, personality traits and skills to provide valuable insight as you explore major and career choices. SDSU students may access FOCUS 2 Career by using their student email and password. After completing FOCUS 2 Career, you may find it helpful to discuss your results with a career coach in the Office of Career Development.
