Studying the Masters at America's Art Museum

Students get the chance to study in the National Gallery of Art.

Studying Art at The Catholic University of America, located in the nation's capital, allows students to experience art inside and outside of the classroom. The opportunities on offer in this culturally rich city enhance art education in ways that few universities in the world can match.

Visiting and taking classes at the art museums in Washington, D.C., comes easily and naturally for our students. Internships and volunteer opportunities introduce students to what it's like to work in the professional art world.
