New TEMPORARY Location for History Department

Everything has a history. From sugar to science, from the Colosseum in Rome to the ruins of Mesa Verde.

MSU Denver History students study our vivid past, different world regions, themes, and time periods with world-class historians and dedicated teachers, in small class settings.

“We are not makers of history. We are made by history.”

– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
