The City College of New York’s (CCNY) Art Department offers the extraordinary opportunity to pursue MFAs in Digital and Interdisciplinary Art Practice and Studio Art, or MAs in Art History and Art Education in the heart of Harlem in New York City.
The MFA in Studio Art was recently ranked among the best graduate fine arts programs in the country by US News & World Report, and Artsy placed the MA in Art History among the 15 leading MA programs in the US. Our MA in Art History emphasizes a global perspective and offers highly regarded concentrations in Art Museum Studies and Art Museum Education. Graduates of our justice-oriented Art Education MA program are fully employed as art teachers and teaching artists across the country.
The Art Department offers competitive full-tuition stipends and partial-tuition stipends for incoming and 2nd year graduate students, individual attention, small class sizes, internship opportunities, visiting artist studio visits, practical teaching experience, extensive dialogue among all areas of the department, long-standing professional relationships with art institutions in New York City, a beautiful historically-renowned campus, and remarkably modest tuition.
Internationally renowned faculty are actively involved as curators, visual artists, and community leaders in the NYC art scene. Faculty honors include representation in the Mayoral Advisory Commission on City Art and the Whitney Biennial, awards from the College Art Association, and grants from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, Simon R Guggenheim Foundation, and Creative Capital.
