Why is art made? What role does it play in our society and culture? How does it benefit us? For those who are interested in the history and analysis of the visual arts, CAM offers a comprehensive art history program. The educational experience for the art history student is centered on the knowledge and skills gained from rigorous and structured courses as well as the rich academic offerings throughout the university.
The faculty is comprised of artists and historians who understand the importance of art applications both in and outside of the classroom. For this reason, your instructors strive to be the bridge between you and the professional world. With the encouragement and efforts of faculty, students are able to involve themselves with the Denver Art Museum, the Emmanuel Gallery and with various galleries and museums across the Front Range.
Bachelor of Fine Arts
Classes cover all areas of art history. Whether you’re looking to curate you own gallery or a museum or become an exhibition coordinator, the Art History program combines a thorough academic curriculum with internship and extracurricular opportunities.
