CU Denver is committed to making education work for all; this includes international students who are abruptly faced with a financial crisis.

Through the ICB program students may earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a primary focus (referred to as a “major”) in either economics or communication. Students must also complete the CU Denver core requirements and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) graduation requirements.
Students may compliment the major with a secondary focus or “minor” in economics, communication, math, philosophy, geography, or international studies when studying in Beijing. Study in Denver allows for additional minor options.
