The Master of Arts degree in Curatorial Practice at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, an immersive two-year program, offers an intense focus on professional training in every aspect of curatorial work while addressing the crucial issues of our time. Our graduates enter the field with practical knowledge of how to do the work, as well as base it in history and theory, having had the chance to interact closely with renowned faculty and experts in small case-study seminars, writing workshops, and professional practices workshops.
This hands-on training is joined with international fieldwork and internships with leading curators as mentors in major institutions throughout the world. Our Curatorial Roundtable brings approximately 60 international curators for seminar sessions and networking over the program’s two years. Students produce several exhibitions in the program and go on to curatorial jobs at a global range of museums and institutions in the US, Europe, Asia, and South America, sometimes with the curators who mentored them.
Our state-of-the-art space in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood is close by hundreds of galleries and museums, and our students can do further internships at institutions ranging from the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art to such leading smaller venues as the Kitchen, Performa, and e-flux, among many others.
We offer the place and time to expand your thinking and skills as a curator, with an extraordinary international faculty in one of the world’s great centers of art. We are now accepting applications for full-time and part-time students. We offer small merit-based supporting scholarships and we welcome diversity of every kind.
