The CAA Directories of Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts

The College Art Association (CAA) is pleased to offer new editions of its two directories of graduate programs in the arts. Listing more than 600 programs in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere worldwide, the guides are the most comprehensive resources available for prospective graduate students in the visual arts. Colleges, universities, and independent art schools are all included.

The first volume, Graduate Programs in Art History: The CAA Directory, includes over 260 programs that offer a master’s, doctoral, or related degrees in art and architectural history, visual studies, museum and curatorial studies, arts administration, library science, and more.

The second book, Graduate Programs in the Visual Arts: The CAA Directory, describes 350+ programs that offer a master’s or other advanced degree in studio art, graphic and web design, art education, film production, conservation, heritage preservation, and more.

Compiled in 2008 and conveniently divided into separate volumes, these easy-to-use directories present detailed data on:

• Descriptions of special courses
• Numbers, names, and specializations of faculty
• Facilities such as libraries, studios, and labs
• Student opportunities for research and work
• Information on financial aid, fellowships, and assistantships
• Details on housing, health insurance, and other practical matters

An index lists schools alphabetically and by state and country for quick reference. An introductory essay presents a detailed description of how to use the guides, including explanations of the various kinds of programs and degrees offered, placing the search and selection process in context.

Although these invaluable books are designed primarily for students who are considering graduate study in the arts, they also provide a wealth of data for academic departments and programs, researchers, publishers, and funders.

Linda Downs, CAA Executive Director, says, “Our members and the field have been eagerly awaiting these new editions. We have been very pleased by the high level of participation from schools and programs. The new volumes promise to be far more detailed in the information they provide than the old books, and vastly more useful than any other guide to graduate study in the arts currently on the market.”

Each directory is available for $39.95 for CAA members and $49.95 for nonmembers, plus shipping and handling. Please visit CAA’s online store at to get your copies today!
