About the Graduate Program at CCS Bard
The graduate program at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard) is an intensive, two-year course of study in the history of contemporary art, the institutions and practices of exhibition making, and the theory and criticism of contemporary art since the 1960s. The program is broadly interdisciplinary and provides practical training and experience within a museum setting. Its international faculty includes curators and other museum professionals, scholars in the humanities and social sciences, artists, and critics.

The curriculum is specifically designed to deepen students’ understanding of the intellectual and technical tasks of curating exhibitions and projects around contemporary art, particularly within the complex social and cultural situations of present-day arts institutions, as well as focusing intensively on interpretive and critical writing. The graduate program is uniquely positioned within the larger Center’s tripartite resources, which include the CCS Bard Library, Archives, and the Hessel Museum of Art, with its rich permanent collection.

An overview of the program is available online.
