Art and Art History


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 20 students emphasizes a collegial student-faculty atmosphere. The Art History program offers courses in most areas of world art, with special emphasis on the arts of Europe and the Americas and global contemporary art. In addition to our own Vicki Myhren Gallery, our partnership with the Denver Art Museum provides opportunities for museum internships and exhibition-based courses.

Our graduates are competitive in 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 with art-related nonprofit organizations.

At the School of Art and Art History we offer many advantages, including the following:

  • small classes and personal attention
  • in-depth training in Art History and research methods
  • an on-site art gallery
  • practical museum training
  • museum internships in local and national institutions
  • a strong alumni network
  • vibrant and diverse cultural activities in Denver
