Welcome to Art History

Suzanne McCauley

Course offerings in art history at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs reflect the unique strengths of local and regional museum collections in the areas of Native American, Hispanic, Spanish Colonial, and Modern and Contemporary art. Courses in these areas are complemented by fieldwork and visits to museums and historic sites in Denver, Colorado Springs, the San Luis Valley, Taos, Santa Fe and New York City. Many additional courses are offered in ancient art, Western European art, art of the Pacific Rim, African art, African American art, feminist art and theory, and the history of photography round out the major. The art history major is also supported by a group of lower and upper division courses required of all students in the Visual and Performing Arts Department that focus on the intersections of art, film, theatre, and music.
