Directories of Graduate Programs in the Arts
The College Art Association’s 2015 editions of Graduate Programs in Art History and Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts are comprehensive resources that feature up-to-date information about 600+ graduate programs in 350 schools in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, and beyond. Together the four-subject volumes provide detailed information about graduate programs in fine art and design, art and architectural history, curatorial studies, arts administration, and more (see sample entries).
Each program entry provides a wealth of details in one comprehensible resource, enabling prospective graduate students to make informed choices. The directories are a key professional reference for career-services representatives, department chairs, graduate and undergraduate advisors, librarians, professional-practices educators, and professors helping an emerging generation of artists and scholars find success.
Graduate Programs in Art History: The CAA Directory contains 250 graduate programs in art and architectural history, arts administration, curatorial and museum studies, and library science. Organized alphabetically by institution name, entries describe curricula, class size, faculty specializations, admission and degree requirements, library facilities, opportunities for fellowships and assistantships, financial aid information, housing and health insurance availability, and more. Geographic and alphabetical indexes are included.
Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts: The CAA Directory includes 350 graduate programs in studio art and design (including digital media, object design, and other forms), art education, conservation and historic preservation, and film production. Organized similarly to Graduate Programs in Art History, this volume also provides information about studio facilities, including health and safety information.
CAA offers PDFs of individual programs (updated in 2015) free of charge. Anyone can search the directories online by program type, faculty specialization, awarded degrees, country, region, state, availability of health insurance, and whether or not part-time students are admitted, or browse the directories by institution and download up to ten individual institutional records as PDFs.
