The Power of Ideas

The College of Letters, Arts and Sciences (CLAS) at MSU Denver is an agent for urban impact transforming lives, communities and higher education through the power of ideas, inspiration and discovery. By offering a broad-based liberal arts curriculum rooted in tradition but supporting innovation and practical application across a wide range of disciplines, CLAS is equipping students with the critical thinking, individual creativity, social conscience and practical skills to transform their world as individuals and citizens through rewarding careers and lifelong learning. By blending accessible, diverse and high quality educational experiences in a vibrant urban setting that foster rich discussion, debate and exploration of relevant problems and solutions with practical application through our many centers, programs, partnerships, internships and research projects, CLAS students leave equipped to think broadly, communicate effectively, enrich our community and create a lasting impact in the world around them.
