Artsy featured CCA's Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice as one of the "15 Leading Art History and Curatorial Master’s Programs in the U.S." alongside programs at Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, Williams College and more. 

"This two-year intensive curatorial training—the first of its kind on the West Coast—will take you through the history and methodology of exhibitions, as well as contemporary and global art history, theory, and criticism, before you embark on a second year in which you’ll undertake individual projects and organize a group-curated exhibition. Among its alumni are Jessica Silverman, who has developed an international reputation for her San Francisco-based gallery, which shows artists from California and elsewhere in the world; Dina Pugh, who oversees Facebook’s Artist-in-Residence program; and Chris Fitzpatrick, the director of Kunstverein Munich, an influential exhibition space in Munich. You’ll also benefit from a close relationship with CCA’s gallery space, the Wattis Institute, which is widely recognized for its strong, often conceptually driven exhibition program."
