Learn more about Academics

​​From honors to advocacy, the University of Colorado Denver has a number of programs that support students in achieving their educational goals. We understand that earning an education abroad is a major decision. CU​ Denver offers many academic resources that benefit international students after their arrival on campus.

The University offers more than 130+ study programs in 13 schools and colleges representing a broad range of disciplines at the bachelor's, master's, doctoral and professional degree levels. Courses are offered online, on a full- or part-time basis, and during the days, evenings and weekends.

Our faculty has the head and the heart for teaching. Many are recognized nationally and internationally for their fields of expertise. Small class sizes provide students with the kind of personal attention generally found in private—not public—institutions. The metropolitan locations of both the Denver Campus and the Anschutz Medical Campus offer plenty of opportunities to experience hands-on training outside of the classroom. Industry experts collaborate with university faculty to create learning opportunities that prepare students for successful careers.
