The MA in Art History at CCNY offers three possible concentrations:
- Art History (30 credits)
- Art Museum Studies (36 credits)
- Art Museum Education (36 credits)
Courses build expertise in the history and theory of art; the history, theory, and professional standards of art museums; and the theory and practice of art museum education. CCNY’s internationally recognized art history faculty specialize in the regions of Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the United States. All courses meet once weekly for three hours.
The program draws upon the resources of New York City’s dynamic arts sector. Many students take advantage of the city to pursue internships in New York museums, galleries, and cultural institutions. The MA degree prepares students to pursue careers in museums and galleries, and/or to further their studies by going on to Ph.D. programs. Full-time students typically take two years to complete the degree.
