Core Curriculum – London and New York
All of the Master’s programs at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London and New York are enhanced by a core curriculum that provides a powerful set of professional skills and critical understandings for our students to mobilize at the completion of their degrees.
The core curriculum brings students from all areas of study together for a common introduction to current issues in the art world – its structures and organizations, as well as its essential skills and protocols. Site visits, lectures and panels, case studies and workshops provide students with both new information and context, as well as real-world examples and experiences.
