Student & Graduate Reviews

3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Near downtown so it is easier for students to commute. All of the courses are offered at night time so it is convenient for students who are working during the day. Cons: Not a lot of specific academic area and lack of good professors
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2016

This is for the biostatistics program in the School of Public Health. The survey did not give a Public Health department for me to choose from.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Love the program and it's drive to educate future counselors on multiculturalism. The courses were challenging enough to push students, but not overwhelming that students lost sight of the bigger picture. Excellent faculty and peer support.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Excellent professors who care about your success. No downside
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel professors ought to be more tough on students in the program. It feels as many students are let off easy just to finish the degree which makes me question how prepared the students my school is putting to the field are.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Wish there was more guidance when coming in but if you are a real go getter you can guide yourself and make the most out of the program, otherwise it's not as useful I don't think.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I loved my program but have so much debt now I don't know how to pay it off.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

The environmental science program at UCD allows you to take a wide range of courses related to environmental science. Students come from many different undergraduate backgrounds and have a wide range of interests, making classes interesting. Being in downtown Denver provides great opportunities for jobs and internships in the field. However, funding for graduate research in this program is scarce.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

It's a program that is still taking shape, but improves every year. The faculty are great, and work hard to make the program more competitive with other universities. The labs do very good research as well. Definitely a program to watch.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is great at giving real world advice, not just teaching textbook material. However, most materials were a bit outdated, still relevant, but could be refreshed.
