International Colleges Beijing courses are CU Denver courses. Students earn CU Denver undergraduate credit and courses appear on students’ transcripts as regular CU Denver courses.

Students may stay for a semester, a year, or more taking classes that fulfill elective or major credit.  While the foci of the program are for Communication and Economics majors, other course offerings include: English, History, International Studies, Math, Geography, Philosophy, Political Science, Accounting, and Sociology.
