The Fine Arts program of The New School centers on one-on-one studio visits, group critiques, critical theory seminars, personalized classes, and writing and research for studio practice, as well as professional practice seminars. Graduate-level academic classes across the university expose students to global contemporary discourse on art and develop their critical abilities. Students can also add a graduate-level minor to their studies. Students interact with visiting artists of varied practices and cultural orientations. Recent visitors include Javier Tellez, Tschabalala Self, Laura Ortman, Carlos Motta, Derrick Adams, Nicole Eisenman, and Alfredo Jaar. Prominent contemporary art curators guide students in preparing for their thesis exhibitions.
You graduate prepared for careers in fine art, arts administration, curatorship, museum management, art criticism, and teaching.
