About Christie’s Education
Christie’s Education New York has been designated as a degree-granting institution by the New York State Board of Regents. Our full-time graduate program in Modern Art, Connoisseurship and the History of the Art Market is registered with the New York State Education Department. Teaching methods are based on investigating works of art in order to train through direct exposure to art-world practice. Each piece of work a student undertakes is related to professional practice, from curatorial and acquisition report writing, to review writing and artifact analysis, as well as training in auction house cataloguing.

Christie’s Education short courses are non-degree programs run in conjunction with Christie’s auction house that address a wide variety of topics. These courses include full-day master classes, evening lecture series, and study trips away from New York.
