The History Department serves thousands of MSU Denver students, whether they are seeking general studies credit, pursuing a History major or minor, fulfilling teaching licensure requirements, or satisfying intellectual curiosity.

With more than 25 full-time professors and a large pool of dedicated affiliate faculty members, the Department offers a wide variety of courses such as Native Americans in American History, Ireland and the Irish, History of China, and History of India. See the semester schedule a full list of current offerings.

Information on department programs including majors, minors, and teaching licensure can be found under Advising. For class requirements and expectations visit Student Resources. Students may be interested in joining either the History Club or the Phi Psi chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the international history honor society. Additional information may be found under Student Resources.


History major and minor requirements and some course titles, numbers and General Studies status will change in Fall 2015. The major and minor changes will apply to students entering under the Fall 2015 University Catalog. History majors and minors who entered under an earlier catalog, and who have been continuously enrolled, will remain under the requirements in effect at the time they entered MSU Denver. The departmental website will be revised during February and March 2015 to include information on the new major and minor requirements.
