According to the CAA,

Graduate Programmes in Art History covers four programme types: History of Art and Architecture, Arts Administration, Curatorial and Museum Studies, and Library Science. This directory integrates programmes in visual studies into History of Art and Architecture. Similarly, Graduate Programmes in the Visual Arts comprises four programme types: Studio Art and Design, Art Education, Conservation and Historic Preservation, and Film Production. Studio Art and Design combines programmes in fine art, digital media, and illustration with those in graphic, industrial, interactive, and object design.

As some of the online samples show, the directories list curricula, faculty specialisations and admission and degree requirements for prospective graduate students. This provides scholars of art, art historians and art critics, as well as art lovers and practitioners with key professional references and opportunities for fellowships and assistantships.
