Founded in 1969, MSU Denver has the only Africana Studies department in the State of Colorado.
The College of Letters, Arts and Sciences is the largest college at MSU Denver. We are made up of 20 different departments separated into two divisions: the Division of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (DAHSS) and the Division of Mathematics and Science (DMS), spanning a wide variety of disciplines.

The Division of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences provides a practical, interdisciplinary education to individuals in an accessible and student-centered environment. Faculty and students collaborate to foster intellectual and creative growth; equity and civic responsibility; community engagement; and professional development. Our programs prepare students for successful careers, post-graduate education, and lifelong learning in a multicultural, global, and technological society.
We educate individuals across the University in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, providing them with the knowledge, experiences, and skills needed for fulfilling lives and successful careers.
The Division of Mathematics and Science provides scientific literacy to all students through inclusive, student-centered pedagogy. We seek to develop critical and analytical thinking, problem solving skills, and social responsibility to prepare students for successful careers, postgraduate education and lifelong learning in a multicultural, global and technological society. To fulfill its mission, the Division of Mathematics and Science offers meaningful connections between faculty and students and engages the greater Denver community at large in scholarly inquiry, creative activity, and the application of knowledge.
The Division of Mathematics and Science provides a learning environment in which faculty, staff, and students acquire knowledge; develop applied, foundational skills in mathematics and science; and transfer knowledge and values as contributing members of society.
