History at MSU Denver

Everything has a history. From sugar to science, from the Colosseum in Rome to the ruins of Mesa Verde. History students at MSU Denver are invited to study our complex past with world-class historians and dedicated teachers, in small class settings. Many courses are available in both the on-campus and/or remote setting, for maximum flexibility. The major includes forty-two (42) credits of courses across different world regions, themes, and time periods. Our students develop breadth while refining their critical thinking and research skills.  We in the History Department believe in the power of a university education to liberate minds, and we are resolute in our service to students from traditionally marginalized communities.  We hope you will join us as we explore the rich and complicated history of humans through time around the globe.

Inclusivity Statement

“We are not makers of history. We are made by history.” -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

MSU Denver is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We in the History Department are resolute in our service to students from traditionally marginalized communities.  We believe in the power of a university education to liberate minds.  We recognize that systematic oppression and structural racism have worked to silence some voices while emphasizing others.  We celebrate historical approaches that promote inclusion and ask challenging questions of the past.  We invite you to join us as we explore the rich and complex history of humans through time around the globe.

What can you do with a History degree?

Our graduates have found careers in law, business, politics, journalism, teaching and museum work thanks to transferable skills the Department of History fosters.
