The School of Art and Art History offers two tracks in our Art History MA degree program: art history and art history with a museum studies concentration. Our program of about 40 students emphasizes a collegial student-faculty atmosphere. The art history program offers courses in most areas of world art, with special emphasis on European and American art from the Middle Ages to the present, Precolumbian art and Asian Art. In addition to our own Victoria H. Myhren Gallery, our partnership with the Denver Art Museum provides opportunities for museum internships and exhibition-based courses.
Our graduates win sought-after positions. Some go on to doctoral studies in the United States or overseas; others hold respected jobs at distinguished art museums or take the road less traveled, entering careers in the diplomatic service, marketing or management with art-related nonprofit organizations.
