Student & Graduate Reviews

3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The Pros of my Graduate program is the Higher Education degree with a program that is Social Justice focus that looks into the US Education's system of Access, Retention and Persistence in students. Denver is a great place to live and cost of living is cheap. It is a program that claims to value Inclusive Excellence. Cons of the program is if you do not have an assitantship or scholarship the tuition is extremely expensive. It is a new program that is starting so at times there are changes made suddenly. At times the student body for Graduate school students focus tend to be small and at times nonexistent.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

I like the diverse classes the EPM program has to offer. The only issue I have is that there aren't many electives and some electives are offered once every 2 years.

I am very excited about beginning my graduate academic career at DU!
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

I couldn’t be more impressed with DU’s commitment to outstanding student outreach and my instructors, who have been professionals in relevant fields and knowledgeable, guiding teachers. Not only does graduate school offer me a sense of purpose and future, but it lends itself to a new chapter in my story; one which I didn’t anticipate reading. I am so happy to have the experience working in sales management at ServiceSource and taking the time to be in a professional setting before going back to school for an advanced degree. The program I am in now is practical, thus preparing me to be a successful employee and leader down the road. I think about how far I have come from a ‘dreamy’ student, reading and thinking as an undergraduate to talking brass tax, fundamentals and non-profit economics in my program at DU. I see myself now as an academic grown-up; a wonderful thing.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

I am very impressed with the Arts and Culture Program Management graduate program at the University of Denver. My professors are professions in the field and in the community. The classes are small and interactive. Furthermore, I am in a program for working adults and the availability of night classes as made my graduate education possible.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

An excellent graduate accounting degree that is attainable in 5 years. Career support and job placement is a major focus and the education is highly regarded as one of the best in the nation. I received a full-time job offer from a Big 4 accounting firm well over a year before I will be graduating. The campus has a great atmosphere, however the surrounding area can be expensive to live in. I love the University of Denver and would highly recommend it.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

The law program at University of Denver is innovative in its use of curriculum. It allows for opportunities to learn through experiential learning opportunities. The faculty is top notch, open with their students, and generally friendly. There is very little cultural diversity in the program, especially for having incoming class sizes that near 300 students. The Career Development Office is not very effective when it comes to assisting with job opportunities outside of the state of Colorado. This is not to paint the CDO in a negative light, but it should be noted that finding work opportunities will rest largely on the part of the student if they hope to find positions outside of Colorado.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a relatively new program and an exciting field to be going into! The Disaster Psych program blends together the clinical aspects of trauma care with a more program evaluative focus; the core faculty are very invested in the students and it is structured to give students real experience, outside of the classroom.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The Graduate School of Social Work at the University of Denver is a competitive atmosphere that allows students to discover their limits and define who they are as a professional. The helpful faculty are always willing to assist you and are helpful in calming those anxious feelings entering the program. Although there is a wide range of field placements, it seems that Advance Standing Students are at a disadvantage when entering the program to find a field placement. I am speaking from an out of state student who was unable to arrive to Denver until three weeks prior to school beginning.
