MA in Critical and Curatorial Studies of Contemporary Art

National Taipei University of Education
About this program
The Master of Arts in Critical and Curatorial Studies of Contemporary Art (CCSCA) is a two-year, intensive, taught-in-English international program, emphasizing both art criticism and curatorial studies, while providing students an opportunity to become familiar with discourses in contemporary art from various vantage points of the globe, especially Asia Pacific region.
Launched in 2016 at National Taipei University of Education, CCSCA is one of very few programs of its kind, focusing on curatorial studies not only in Taiwan but also in Asia. With Taiwan’s important geographical location in East Asia, CCSCA can be an excellent cultural exchange center between Northeast and Southeast Asia, as well as between the Mainland and the Pacific Ocean. The term “critical” in the program title not only stands for “art criticism” but also refers to the critical thinking and the socio-political consciousness in large via curating.
