Call for applications
Applications are now open for the master of arts degree in Curatorial Practice at the School of Visual Arts in the heart of New York City, close to hundreds of art galleries, world-renowned museums, and thousands of artists’ studios. Our two-year degree is oriented around practical professional training, with case-study seminars focused on specific types of curating, art and exhibition history courses, workshops in writing and professional practices, and weekly roundtables with international curators and artists, all taught by a faculty of leading curators and experts who teach you what they do professionally. International fieldwork and internships take place between the two years of the program. 

Our students go on to jobs at museums and institutions in the US, Europe, Asia, and South America, sometimes with the curators who mentored them during their internship. Our program has always been dedicated to social justice and activism, and every course addresses curatorial work toward these ends. Find out more about the program here. Applications deadline is January 15, 2024. Merit-based, partial tuition scholarships are available. Feel free to reach out to make an appointment for consultation via phone or Zoom, or come visit in person. Please contact us at
