Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Students in the Art History, Theory, and Criticism minor study art and visual culture from a variety of cultures and time periods. Students gain research and critical thinking skills as well as learn to do close visual analysis, which are all useful in a variety of career applications and creative industries. The Department of Art and MSU Denver are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.

A grade of “C-” or better is required in each required course before progressing to subsequent courses. Students should note that programs differ in the minimum grade required. A minimum of nine upper division art history hours is required.

Art History, Theory, and Criticism is a distinct academic discipline from Art or Communication Design, although all reside within the Department of Art and share common foundational requirements.
