News & Events

  • One of my favorite aspects of the program was the specificity of the courses we took. Each and every class was geared towards learning how to directly apply themes taught in the classroom to the real world. The Art Law courses were especially interesting and practical, and having three terms with impressive professionals exponentially increased my understanding of complex legal concepts.

  • The program helped me to understand the structure of the art market, in particular how art galleries, especially emerging art galleries, and dealer systems work. I loved the fact that we were immersed in the art world, both practical and theoretical parts as I love art history and the hands-on approach that Christie’s Education offers.
