As one of the major art centers in the world, New York is the ideal place to study modern and contemporary art and the business of art. Our programs emphasize object-based learning, interaction with art world professionals and real-time analysis of the art market in order to enhance exploration of the art world.
Christie’s Education provides a range of support services focused on enhancing the overall student experience. Staff are available to help with a wide range of general inquiries regarding the courses offered and provide official enrollment verification letters and advice about accommodation, health insurance, immigration, and financial matters.
Christie’s Education does not provide housing for students enrolled in our programs. In June, a letter with detailed information on the upcoming year will be sent to enrolled Master’s students that will include instructions on how to join a listserv for students looking for roommates from the incoming class. A list of NYC housing information is available upon request by emailing NewYork@christies.edu
Every year Christie’s Education orchestrates a Staff and Student Forum that runs over the three class terms. The forum is made up of representatives from the Master of Arts programs and the Certificate in Modern and Contemporary Art in New York, the Academic Director, Director of Business Affairs and Student Services, and Academic and Financial Aid Coordinator. The forum meets once a term to discuss suggestions, concerns, new events or anything else that seems relevant.These representatives also serve as class contacts once they have graduated from the programs.

sessions address the mechanics of essay writing and conventions used in art history. Individual sessions are available to students who wish to have support on specific assignments.
