About

SAIC's Dual Degree option in Modern and Contemporary Art History and Arts Administration and Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago combines two synergistic degrees to prepare students for careers in arts and cultural institutions.

Overview

The Dual Masters of Arts in Modern and Contemporary Art History and Arts Administration and Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago is a three-year, 66-credit degree that provides students the ability to earn two synergistic degrees while maintaining the integrity and high standards of each degree. 

The curriculum is tailored to combine graduate studies in the history of modern and contemporary art, theory, and criticism, business administration, cultural policy, and curatorial practice.
