Graduate Program

The MS-PhD program prepares baccalaureate-prepared nurses to enter the doctor of philosophy program, which is designed to promote knowledge development for reflective, theory-based and research-guided nursing practice, after completion of a master's program focusing on a specialty nursing area.

Available Specialty Programs

Students select from nine different specialties, five of which include an interdisciplinary urban underserved (CU-UNITE) track. Past coursework to be applied toward the degree will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The specific courses required for each specialty option are on the specialty pages.
