Welcome to the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences

Welcome to the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences at MSU Denver. It is an honor and privilege to serve this outstanding group of students, staff, and faculty.

Our college plays an essential role in your educational journey. Housing 20 academic departments; 5 centers and institutes; and numerous programs focused on community service, social justice, and global discovery, CLAS is the largest college on the MSU campus. We do more than deliver a strong academic experience – we provide the foundation of all human knowledge. While that may sound audacious, it is true. Innovation and technology; medical advancements; cultural and historical understanding; effective communication; human purpose….all of life’s enduring questions and discoveries begin within the sciences, humanities (letters), and arts.

Most importantly, our faculty and staff demonstrate that the connection points across and between disciplines are at the heart of understanding the human experience. This interdisciplinary lens is an essential viewpoint for our students as they pursue of meaningful careers and lives of substance.

Thank you for joining us in this educational journey. We are thrilled you are part of our Roadrunner family.
