Center for New Directions in Politics and Public Policy

Admissions Requirements


 

No standardized tests, such as the GRE, are needed for admission into the master’s degree program. However, successful completion of the core course, Politics, Public Policy, and Leadership, is required. It is strongly recommended that Politics, Public Policy, and Leadership be your first course toward your Master of Arts in Political Science degree with concentration on politics and public policy, but you are not prohibited from taking any Center for NEW DIRECTIONS course prior to or following formal admission to the program.

If you will need financial aid to complete your Masters Degree Program, please apply for admission prior to class registration.  To request admission for the fall 2010 semester, a complete application for graduate admission should be filed with the NEW DIRECTIONS office no later than July 1 to allow for department decision making and financial aid processing. If you do not need financial aid for your course of study, applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please contact the Center for NEW DIRECTIONS at 303/556-5950 or kathryn.cheever@ucdenver.edu for additional details.

The admissions process and registration for new students begins with the Center for NEW DIRECTIONS. If you are interested in beginning any program, please call the Center for NEW DIRECTIONS at 303-556-5950, or email the Director. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your personal academic background, and how one of the Center’s programs might help you attain your own academic and professional goals!
