The Power of Ideas

Since its founding in 1963, Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) has transformed the lives of more than 90,000 people in Colorado through affordable degree programs, community engagement, innovative public-private partnerships, and a commitment to diversity. By offering a broad-based curriculum in the liberal arts and sciences, the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences (CLAS) at MSU Denver transforms lives and communities through the power of ideas, inspiration and discovery. CLAS provides an integrated education, and our dedicated faculty engage students in deliberative dialogues, undergraduate research, and experiential learning. We prepare students to engage in civic problem-solving to address the most pressing issues in society, and to create an enriching life. MSU Denver’s mission is to provide a high-quality, accessible, enriching education that prepares students for successful careers, post-graduate education and lifelong learning in a multicultural, global, and technological society.
