Programs that Challenge You Now. A Career that Challenges You for a Lifetime.

Launch your career with real-world experience unmatched by any other mental health graduate program in Colorado.

The School of Education and Human Development attracts counseling and school psychology students who are passionate about working with clients and families from diverse cultural backgrounds to advance and sustain their personal growth. We match their passion with an education that is rooted in evidence-based approaches and real-world practice grounded in social justice and culturally and linguistically responsive practice.


Our students follow a rigorous degree program that includes outstanding coursework, practicum and field experiences designed for state licensure eligibility. Our mental health graduates are recognized as among the most well prepared in the nation to support diverse languages, cultures and abilities in the community and around the world. Here’s why:

  • Our academic programs and curriculum reflect a philosophy of inclusion and social justice.
  • Our students have the opportunity to learn from numerous faculty members who are the go-to experts in their field.
  • The CU Denver Student and Community Counseling Center provides counseling and school psychology students with hands-on experience.
  • Our school resides in the center of a thriving urban setting. This creates a diverse university community, which promotes cross-cultural fluency and counselors/school psychologists who are prepared to work in urban and diverse settings.
  • The physical location in the heart of the city also provides unique opportunities for our students to engage with children and youth, couples and families, and other university students with diverse perspectives and backgrounds.
