FIT’s Master of Arts program in Art Market Studies provides students with the knowledge and skills to successfully navigate the global art world. Graduates apply their passion for art and business acumen to a variety of roles – in commercial art galleries, auction houses, art fairs, museums, foundations, online platforms, and art appraisal firms. The first two semesters of the three-semester program feature intensive coursework in subjects ranging from art law to valuation to the history of contemporary art. The program culminates in a flexible and customizable third semester. In addition to a required internship, students may elect to complete an academic thesis or pursue additional business-oriented coursework. The curriculum strives to reflect the realities of the art market today by integrating interdisciplinary studies with practical experience, as well as by adopting an overt focus on contemporary art and a global perspective.
The Art Market Studies program seeks a full-time, tenure-track faculty member to start in Fall 2019. Candidates will have a PhD in a related field, an established academic profile and teaching experience. They will also have art world experience, having worked for an art organization or business, and will be adept at navigating both the academic and professional spheres.
Review of applications will commence immediately and continue until the position is filled. First consideration will be given to completed applications received by October 1, 2018. Salary and appointment rank will be based on cumulative experience.
