Your boss is a bully, and the way he is treating you is extremely unprofessional. For example, If your boss is critical of everything you do, often in front of other people, then that is a bad boss. Exposure to this type of behavior is likely to have a damaging effect on your confidence, self esteem and the way you carry out your work. It's not something you should put up with. Easy to say, but much more difficult to remedy.

You have two options.

1.      Change the way they treat you

Investigate the company policy on bullying. There is an increasing recognition of the severity of this problem and many organizations have systems in place to tackle it. If you start documenting incidents where you've been humiliated or treated unfairly, this will strengthen your case for transfer.

No manager should criticize staff in front of colleagues. Next time they do it, try saying "I don't think it's appropriate to discuss this here, can we go somewhere else private?" Use this private discussion to explain how demoralizing you find this approach to your work. Ask for specific pointers on how he would like you improve and suggestions on what help or training you could be offered.

2.      Remove yourself from their sphere of influence

The second alternative is often the most realistic. It doesn't necessarily mean leaving the company. If their style of management is not the norm in your organization, aim to get yourself moved to another department.

Never forget that you can leave. No job is worth sacrificing your self-esteem for.
