Safer Spaces Resolution
For Black, Brown, and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) Impacted by State and Police Violence
Here’s a degree that provides both! Born out of the civil-rights movement, the Department of Chicana/o Studies at MSU Denver is rooted in community and offers degrees you can’t get anywhere else in Colorado. Through our degrees, you’ll have access to a rich selection of events and internships to enhance your professional career. We’ll take you on an immersive journey through history to discover Chicana/o culture and examine the impact it has had in today’s society.
As a Chicana/o Studies major, you’ll also dissect many of the problems that Latina/o communities face in these tumultuous times and come up with practical solutions. Students at Denver’s South, West and North High Schools can enroll concurrently to get a head start on their college careers. Your experiences outside the classroom will help you develop a deep sense of community and give you an intimate view of where and how you can help effectively. Our program is rooted in social justice, and we’re proud to share the same core values as MSU Denver’s leadership.
A degree in this social science provides you with an intellectual and professional foundation to succeed in any career path. A concentration in Cultural Studies pairs well with art-related fields, and a teaching licensure will help get your foot in the door if you want to teach. Our grads have also been accepted into graduate programs and law schools throughout the country. No matter what road you choose to run, the Department of Chicana/o Studies at MSU Denver is a great place to start your marathon.
“Encanto,” “West Side Story” show growing Latino influence in movies, but Denver has a ways to go.
MSU Denver molded my psyche, identity and worldview in a profound and unforgettable way. I gained a sense of cultural pride and philosophies that still guide a lot of my work today. If it wasn’t for MSU Denver, I wouldn’t be the person I am today – period.
