    IFA MA vs. UT-Austin PhD

    Hello everyone I'm interested in studying photography (including issues of class, power and the documentary genre). I was accepted to the IFA's MA program, and the UT Austin PhD American Studies program (which would have a strong photography angle). I am wait-listed at U Michigan-Ann Arbor's PhD art history program. I ultimately want to get a PhD, then teach and curate photography. IFA is tremendously respected, and would open a lot of doors (maybe more in curating than academia), but would cost $70,000. UT Austin is of course free. But do you think it 1.) is respected / opens doors and 2.) might allow me to keep a foot in both academic and curating worlds? I would appreciate any insight you might have. Thank you!
  2. Hello everyone I'm interested in a masters in art history with a focus on postwar American and European documentary photography. Ultimately I'd like to do museum curation. I'd like to stay in a medium-to-large US city. Ideally the school would provide funding. Could you please let me know which schools I should add to or remove from this list? NYU - IFA Bryn Mawr CUNY City College of NY University of Maryland-College Park UC Riverside Tufts University Boston University U of Arizona (Tucson) U of New Mexico SUNY Stony Brook Thanks very much!
