DIRECTORIES OF GRADUATE PROGRAMS IN THE ARTS NOW AVAILABLE!

CAA has published new editions of Graduate Programs in Art History and Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts, directories of 650 graduate programs in six countries. Graduate Programs in Art History covers the following four program types: History of Art and Architecture, Arts Administration, Curatorial and Museum Studies, and Library Science. Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts comprises Studio Art and Design, Art Education, Film Production, and Conservation and Historic Preservation.
The comprehensive directories provide vital information to prospective graduate students and also serve as key professional references for career-services representatives, department chairs, graduate and undergraduate advisors, librarians, and professional-practices educators. Readers can draw important conclusions from these facts, such as the competitiveness of a program based on the number of applications received and accepted. To give you a better sense of the content, look at these three sample entries.
Organized alphabetically by school name within each program type, entries describe:
  • Curricula
  • Class size
  • Faculty and specializations
  • Degree requirements
  • Library and studio facilities
  • Opportunities for fellowships, assistantships, and financial aid
  • Availability of health insurance
The directories are available in the following digital and print formats:
  • Four-program print volumes, Graduate Programs in Art History and Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts
  • Downloadable PDFs of individual entries
  • Ebooks of individual program types
  • Individual print volumes of the following six program types: History of Art and Architecture, Studio Art and Design, Art Education, Arts Administration, Curatorial and Museum Studies, and Film Production
