Which Graduate Program Is Right for You?

College Art Association (CAA)

The College Art Association has published Graduate Programs in Art History and Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts, directories of 650 graduate programs across five countries, in both print and digital formats. Graduate Programs in Art History covers 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. You can purchase all or selected program types as perfect-bound, softcover books, as ebooks, or as PDF files.

These comprehensive guides provide prospective graduate students with the information they need prior to beginning the application process. The directories are also key professional references for career-services representatives, department chairs, graduate and undergraduate advisors, librarians, professional-practices educators, and professors interested in helping emerging generations of artists and scholars find success.

Organized alphabetically by school name within each program type, entries describe curricula, class size, faculty and specializations, admission and degree requirements, library and studio facilities, opportunities for fellowships and assistantships, and the availability of health insurance. To get a better sense of the content, look at these sample entries.

Readers can search the directories by program type, faculty specialization, awarded degrees, country, region, state, availability of health insurance, and whether or not part-time students are admitted. You can also browse by institution name to download individual entries as PDF files. All entries within a particular program can be purchased as an ebook or a print volume. The two full print volumes containing four program types each, Graduate Programs in Art History and Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts, are also available.
