The Master’s Degree Professional Program described here aims to give students specific expertise in contemporary artistic production in the Arab world, Iran and Turkey. The course of study includes modules on curatorship, art history, art criticism, publicity and publishing.
Through an intensive course of study, students will acquire a range of skills that would assist their response to the requirements of various institutions needing specialised personnel, not just in the Middle East, but globally. Besides a strong focus on curatorship, students will also be able to explore related areas of interest, starting with a choice of internships offered by the programme. They will thus acquire a particularly versatile profile, open to further careers as described below.
Students will acquire theoretical and art historical skills (modules Global Art; Modern and Contemporary Art in the Arab world, Iran and Turkey) and practical skills in curatorship, art criticism, art writing, and arts management (modules Curatorship Theory and Practice; Art Criticism and Writing; Arts Management).
