"When applying to graduate schools, I was drawn to the curatorial certificate program at Rutgers as a way to supplement my PhD. The introductory museum training course provided behind-the-scenes looks at several museum careers. The three internships allowed me to keep active in the job market while in grad school."

 "The Curatorial Studies Certificate has been an invaluable tool for my professional and personal growth. This program gave me the necessary training to work in the curatorial field and the amazing opportunity to learn from established curators in the most prestigious museums in New York. The experience that I gained has been fundamental in preparing me for the job market and helping me to mature as a scholar."

Former Students

Dr. Sharon Matt Atkins

Managing Curator of Exhibitions, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY

“The Curatorial Studies program at Rutgers provided me with invaluable resources and training at an early stage in my career. Alongside rigorous art history seminars, it offers a unique combination of coursework introducing critical issues in the field paired with hands-on training via museum internships. Especially in today’s job market, practical experience that supplements an art history degree is an absolute must for pursuing a curatorial career.”

 

 
 

 

Dr. Mary M. Tinti

Associate Curator at the Fitchburg Museum, Fitchburg, MA

"The Certificate Program in Curatorial Studies provided a connection-rich, hands-on introduction to prestigious area museums and allowed me to learn from seasoned curators at those institutions. It also gave me some much needed, behind-the-scenes insight into the philosophy of museums and the totality of creating an exhibition. As an art historian who loves all aspects of the discipline - research, writing, teaching, and curating - I'm so grateful to the faculty at Rutgers for designing a graduate program that exposed me to a multitude of career paths. That kind of flexibility was particularly important for me (a student who didn't know exactly which path to choose), better prepared me for the job market, and absolutely made me the well-rounded scholar and curator I am today."

Associate Professor, Purchase College, SUNY



"The Rutgers University program is an exceptional opportunity for aspiring art historians and curators. It provided me with the opportunity to combine theory and practice into a unique learning experience that challenged me, engaged me, and prepared me for my work as a chief curator and as a teacher. It gave me the tools to, not only make exhibitions and work with collections, but also to combine my curatorial work with curricular initiatives."
