More course options

And even more flexible class times

The world doesn’t work only during “school hours”—we don’t think college classes should either.
We offer an array of times, places and ways to pack learning into your day. Sure, we have traditional lectures, labs, essays and exams, but they’re part of an incredible range of programs, courses and class schedules all designed to help you make the most of every moment.
  • Classes are available throughout the day and into the evening.
  • We offer more than 200 courses online, giving you access 24/7.
Our courses reflect today’s job market, the demands of employers, the latest technology and more.
Undergraduate programs at CU Denver consist of a university- wide core curriculum, your degree requirements and elective courses. You’ll also enhance your proficiency in areas like mathematics, reading, writing, public speaking and critical thinking. And, you’ll cultivate a breadth of knowledge and sensitivity to cultural diversity—necessary skills to navigate the world around you successfully. Find opportunity here.
Smaller class sizes mean bigger opportunities.
Our average class size for undergraduates is 27 students; the average student-to-faculty  ratio is 1:17. That means more individualized attention from professors who are experts in their fields. Think of the conversations you’ll have.
Get a jump start on a career in health care.
Careers in health can span everything from being doctors, nurses and pharmacists to related careers that impact the health and wellness of our community. So we offer traditional pre-health programs within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and a variety of health-related courses and majors focusing on everything from engineering life-saving medical devices to restoring health-care systems in third-world countries. Learn more about planning a health career and earning a degree in public health.
