CERTIFICATE IN MUSEUM STUDIES The Advanced Certificate in Museum Studies complements the MS degree in History of Art and Design by offering both a solid educational base in art and design history and a practical, in-depth experience in the museum world. The faculty members are museum professionals who bring their diverse expertise and experience to the classroom. The Certificate is particularly helpful to graduate students seeking employment in museums and galleries. The Certificate is available to graduate students in the History of Art and Design only, and will not be awarded without completion of the MS degree. Some of the certificate courses may also be used towards the MS degree requirements. The required courses (9 credits): HA 560 Museology (3 cr) HA 9603 Internships at two different museums HA 9603B (6 cr total) Elective course options (6 credits): HA 600I ADE 524 LIS 629 LIS 632 ACM 621 ACM 622 ACM 624 ACM 642 ACM 651 Please sign up for the Certificate in the Registrar’s Office or the History of Art & Design Department (East 205). Please email any questions to the department at ha@pratt.edu.



It is essential to the conduct of research in art history to acquire reading knowledge of several languages. The department requires that students demonstrate proficient reading comprehension in French or German prior to commencing work on the thesis. In rare cases, and only if required for a major part of thesis research, a different language may be substituted with permission of the Chair. You can fulfill the foreign language requirement in either of the following ways:

* Pass the department’s exam, which consists of translating a short passage into English; dictionary allowed (45 minutes). * Pass one of CUNY’S Reading Comprehension Language courses with a grade of B+ or better.


MASTER THESIS REQUIRNMENTS 1. A Master’s Thesis is a requirement for the M.S. degree. The thesis will be a substantial essay of about 40 pages (8,000-9,000 words), excluding illustrations and bibliography. A written 2-3 page Proposal with a brief but well-considered annotated bibliography is a required part of the thesis; the proposal is due by the end of the third term and must have been approved by the advisor before the actual writing of the thesis may begin. The thesis is to be completed in the fourth semester (typically the Spring term). 2. Students choose an advisor by the end of the second semester of the first year and will schedule a first meeting with the advisor at this time to discuss topic ideas and possible critical approaches to the material. Students are strongly encouraged to begin thinking about and researching their thesis topic over the summer or the semester break prior to beginning their proposal. 3. In choosing a topic, students in consultation with their advisor, should consider questions that are appropriate to the recommended length. It is strongly suggested that a student develop a topic from a prior seminar paper; other topics are also possible and must be approved by the advisor. 4. The student should set up a degree audit with the Assistant Chair by the end of the third term before embarking on the writing of the thesis. 5. Students, if not already using Zotero, should visit the library for instruction. The proposal must: - state the subject of the thesis and a one to three sentence hypothesis of the main argument. - explain the method and means of research - include a preliminary outline of chapters or sections. - include a substantial bibliography (primary and secondary sources) with at least eight annotated sources. Annotations entail a brief summary of each that addresses its usefulness and perspective.


Proposal Timeline: 1. Two weeks into the semester the student will present a preliminary brief bibliography to the advisor. 2. Six weeks into the semester a first draft of the proposal is due to the advisor. The advisor will return the proposal draft within 10 days and will work with the student on any requested revisions. 3. Eight or nine weeks into the semester the finished proposal is submitted to the advisor with the fully annotated bibliography 4. Five weeks before the semester ends the advisor has approved the proposal. The proposal is given to a 2nd reader together with the department’s form for further feedback and suggestions. The second reader is a faculty member; the selection made in consultation with the advisor or the chair. The student should have approached the 2nd reader earlier in the semester to see whether he or she is available to comment on the proposal. If the faculty member has agreed, then he or she is obligated to work within the required timeline and return the proposal by the due date. •It is the student’s responsibility to hand the proposal to the 2nd reader and remind the 2nd reader at least one week before the date of the forthcoming submission. 5. At least three weeks before the last day of classes the 2nd reader returns the proposal and form to the student and the advisor with his or her suggestions. The 2nd reader will copy the Advisor on his comments. •Once the 2nd reader submits recommended changes and comments, the 2nd reader’s responsibility ends. The advisor supervises further editing of the proposal and the writing of the thesis. •Students should continue research and begin drafting text while the proposal is being reviewed. 6. One to two weeks before the last day of classes the approved proposal signed by the advisor with annotated bibliography is due in the Chair’s office where it will become a record in the student’s file. Student fully embarks on writing the thesis.


Thesis Writing: While researching the material, the student may begin work on a draft but more importantly, continues to work on mastering the relevant literature on the chosen topic and to annotate the bibliography so that when the actual writing begins, the student will have a thorough grasp of the material and the question the thesis is to address. 1. Format: The thesis should be prepared using the Chicago Manual of Style and following the formatting guidelines established by the Pratt Institute Library (see http:// libguides.pratt.edu/thesisguide). Students should use the software Zotero from the start of their research in order to facilitate easy organization and consistency in bibliography and citations. 2. The thesis will go through two revisions with the advisor. This is a requirement for both the student and the advisor. • By the end of the semester in which the proposal is approved the student will submit 1/4 to 1/3 of his thesis draft to the advisor. • By 3 weeks into the second semester of thesis work (or the semester following proposal is approved) one-half of the thesis is due to the advisor. • By halfway through the second semester (and one month before it is due in the Chair’s office) a full draft is due to the advisor. 3. The final advisor-approved thesis is due in the Chair’s office four weeks before the deposit deadline for the library (May 15 for spring submissions, September 15 or January15 for fall submission). The student must submit one hard copy printed on regular paper. In addition, a digital copy must be deposited in the designated shared Dropbox folder. Separate guidelines will be sent out to lead the student through the final submission steps. 4. The final draft copy should include an official title page (Pratt Library template for HAD) in 3 copies printed on archival paper, signed by the advisor. The Advisor’s signature indicates that the advisor has approved the final draft. The signature pages should be printed on archival paper to facilitate final submission of thesis.


5. The thesis, while approved by the advisor, is still considered a draft until the Chair has approved the copy. After the Chair (or the faculty member designated by the Chair) has approved the final draft, the student will make any required final corrections and then print three copies on archival paper, one for Library deposit, one for the HAD archives, and one a personal copy. The title page must bear the signatures of both the advisor and Chair. 6. Final submission dates: May 15 for Spring,(September 15, or January 15 for Fall). Before depositing the thesis in the library, the student must: •have a final degree audit at the Registrar’s Office; •settle all outstanding fees at the Bursar’s Office; •have the HAD office do a scan of the title page; •sign an authorization form to make the thesis available on the HAD website; •send the final corrected and approved thesis as a digital copy to the designated departmental Dropbox.


GRADING ASSISTANTSHIP JOB DESCRIPTION General Being a Grader constitutes a contractual agreement between a faculty member and a student in the Department of History of Art & Design, with obligations to both parties, and with the Department of History of Art and Design in a supervisory capacity. The work of a StudentGrader is governed by Pratt’s student employment policies, which are reflected in the job description below. The principal responsibility of the grader is to grade student assignments in consultation with the instructor. Instructors and graders are advised to maintain open communication via email or phone. Graders must attend all class sessions of the sections for which they grade, unless the instructor has determined an alternative arrangement (For example attending alternate class sessions of two sections of the same survey course). Graders must attend scheduled museum field trips. Both the instructor and the Grader must be present at all examinations. Graders assist in proctoring the exam. Neither the Grader nor the Instructor may be in the classroom when students fill out course evaluations at the end of the term, a policy that must be strictly enforced. Grading Under the supervision of the course instructor, graders grade quizzes, the mid-term and final exams, and any written homework for the sections to which they are assigned. In all cases, the instructor will provide a thorough key and basic written guidelines for grading and should discuss them with the assistant.


GRADING ASSISTANTSHIP The instructor will check and discuss with the grader sample exams (to determine a typical grade of A, B, C, etc.). Exam papers and museum assignments must be returned to the students within two weeks. Final grades are due two days after the exam period ends; thus the grader must submit final exam grades to the instructor prior to the grade deadline so that course grades can be submitted on time. The instructor will set a reasonable deadline by which s/he needs the final exam grades. Graders will meet with the instructor in the last week of the term to help compile grades and, particularly, to help decide border-line case grades, since often the grader will be more familiar with a given student’s work than the instructor. Final responsibility for grades rests with the instructor. The instructor must review the grader’s work and communicate any concerns. The instructor must be prepared to explain all assigned grades. Grading assistants cannot be assigned the responsibility of teaching a class in the instructor’s absence. Graders are hired, and their paperwork is processed, by the Assistant to the Chair (please pick up hiring paperwork in the HA&D office no later than 2:00 pm on the second Friday of the semester). Both grader and instructor should report any concerns over the course of the semester to the Assistant to the Chair. HA&D Main Office: East Hall, Room 205. e: ha@pratt.edu p: 718 636 3598


INTERNSHIP PROGRAM Graduate students in the History of Art and Design have internships at a variety of institutions—including major museums, non-profit cultural institutions, auction houses and galleries. These internships offer a wide range of experiences that often become career-defining. An internship includes course requirements: To conduct an extensive interview with someone who is a potential role model for the students and their own aspirations. This project has proven to be informative and, in some cases, fascinating. The internship includes three required meetings with the department’s coordinator which students discuss their internship experience. Students must also contribute to a blog about their weekly activities and learning opportunities. Graduate students in the Certificate of Museum Studies are required to do two internships at different museums. The department maintains a list of the institutions that have sponsored our students in the past. The department seeks to assure that all internships done for credit are valuable learning experiences.
