Graduate Art History at CCNY

Artsy names City College’s MA in Art History as one of the top programs in the United States.

City College’s MA in Art History prepares its graduates for careers as art historians and art museum professionals.

The program offers three possible tracks for the MA degree:

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 faculty members teach courses in the arts of Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and North America. All graduate courses meet once a week for three hours.

The program draws upon the resources of New York City’s dynamic arts sector. Students have the opportunity to obtain internships in New York museums, galleries, and cultural institutions. The MA degree prepares students to pursue careers in a range of art institutions, and/or to further their studies by going on to Ph.D. programs. Full-time students ideally take two years to complete the degree.
