UCI Extension is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of its Appraisal Studies in Fine and Decorative Arts Certificate Program. A partnership with the American Society of Appraisers – or ASA – the university-based curriculum is the only one of its kind on the West Coast and is designed for art gallery personnel and dealers, museum docents, auctioneers, estate liquidators, insurance adjustors, jewelers or collectors.

“The appraisal studies program is an ideal venue solution for those seeking to reinvent their career, and will undoubtedly see additional growth and expansion in the coming years as more individuals turn their personal passion into a profession,” said Kirwan Rockefeller, director of sustainability studies, arts and humanities at UCI Extension.

Upon completion of the certificate, students will have the ability to appraise a variety of objects for personal use and enjoyment, as well as for insurance coverage, estate tax, damage claims, buying and selling consultations, and charitable contributions. The program includes four core courses and three elective units.
