Twelve credits in graduate art history courses are required for the certificate, as well as an M.A. in art history or the Brooklyn College M.F.A. degree in studio art or the Brooklyn College M.F.A. degree in performance and interactive media arts (PIMA).

Students must complete Art 7184G and 7185G.

Brooklyn College M.F.A. and PIMA students may count Art 7184G and 7185G toward the twelve required art history credits.

Students must also complete two 60-hour internships, Art 7193G and 7194G.

Students will begin the program with art history courses. They must complete Art 7184G before the internships. The internships can either be completed during the summer or during the fall or spring semesters along with their regular coursework in art history. Students should complete Art 7185G in the second year. The master's thesis may consist of a strictly art historical subject or may include some research into museum education.
