Art challenges, transforms and defies containment. Ranked among the top 25 fine arts programs in the nation, the Department of Art and Art History at CU Boulder, with the support of its highly active faculty, is committed to helping graduate students realize their individual visions as artists and art historians through our rigorous programs and mentorship.

The department offers three core graduate programs: a Master of Fine Arts in art practices; a Master of Arts in art history; and a Doctor of Philosophy in arts of the Americas. In a collaboration with the Leeds School of Business, we also offer two dual degree programs. Students can pursue a dual degree of an MFA/MBA or an MA/MBA. Candidates must apply to each program separately.
