Case Western Reserve University’s Joint Program with the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) offers outstanding, funded opportunities to pursue intensive, object-based art historical study. Drawing on the CMA’s encyclopedic collection, the program offers courses in global art history from antiquity to the present. Students enjoy the resources of a major research university and a renowned museum with a superb art library.
The Joint Program provides students with unparalleled access to the CMA and affords opportunities to work and study closely with distinguished professors, curators, and museum educators. The curriculum focuses on close engagement with objects, methodologies, research, critical analysis and writing; technical examinations of works of art; experiential learning; and professional experience. We prepare students to be leaders in academia, museums, and galleries. Our graduates are employed at prominent institutions in all these areas, as well as in related careers.
Students in the CWRU-CMA Joint Program can pursue an MA in Art History, an MA in Art History and Museum Studies, an MA/JD in conjunction with the CWRU School of Law, or a PhD in Art History. Our faculty teach most classes in the museum, many in collaboration with CMA curators. In addition to coursework, students hold internships at the CMA, the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland (MOCA), the Western Reserve Historical Society, and other area institutions.
Students also organize the Cleveland Symposium, one of the oldest graduate student symposia in art history in the United States, and participate in CWRU and the CMA’s active lecture programs, which bring distinguished scholars to campus. CWRU offers generous financial support to MA and PhD students, including tuition remission and stipends. Additional funding is provided for research and conference travel.
