Program description

History of design and curatorial studies

History of Design and Curatorial Studies (MA) - Parsons Paris Campus

Offered in cooperation with the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and other leading institutions in the field of Art and Design in Paris, the History of Design and Curatorial Studies program leads to a master of arts degree. Graduates may go on to careers as historians, curators, and scholars in museums, universities, historic houses, auction houses, and galleries.

The program's curriculum focuses on the stylistic, historical, and theoretical contexts of arts, decorative arts, and design from the Renaissance to the present, with particular attention to the history of collections and the contemporary issues in curation.

Object-based courses on a broad range of works, movements, theories and practices go beyond connoisseurship to address objects as intersections of socio-historic meaning and aesthetic theory. Students gain practical and theoretical instruction in research on and the display of design objects.
