The Cooper-Hewitt Museum and the Parsons School of Design create a new masters' degree curriculum in the history of decorative arts. In September, the museum welcomes the first class of twenty-five students in the two year program which leads to a Master of Arts degree. The program is a collaboration between the Cooper-Hewitt and the Parsons School of Design/The New School, and is "the first of its kind in the country to deal exclusively with European decorative arts and art history."
