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.

  • Christie’s Education acted as a stepping stone into the art world, particularly for the New York art scene and the major players involved – many of whom came to speak at our seminars. Our alumni network is also a great resource, and lots of my Christie’s Education classmates work with me at Christie’s.
