Graduate, professional and undergraduate students from both campuses that conduct international research also benefit from Global Education’s support services.
We offer two CU Denver Semester Study Abroad programs: The Semester in Beijing semester program is of particular interest to communication, economics, math and international studies undergraduate students. Students from Denver and China study together on our partner campus at China Agricultural University in Beijing. Students take English-taught CU Denver courses for CU Denver credit. The program cost is the same as studying in Denver, with several scholarship opportunities to further reduce the price.
Sustainability in Berlin is open to undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines, but Political Science, Architecture and Planning, Public Affairs, and Environmental Studies are of particular interest. Students take three CU Denver courses and participate in an internship (in English) with a Berlin-based environmental organization. The program is hosted by the Ecologic Institute, one of the world’s leading environmental think tanks.
Study abroad programs are offered in a variety of terms, costs and disciplines to suit the full spectrum of CU Denver students. Students may choose to immerse themselves in a more traditional academic year or semester program abroad; or to conduct research on field studies sites. Many students choose to study for credit with CU Denver faculty on one of the many affordable, focused Global Study programs over winter break, Maymester or summer.
While many students study abroad to learn or perfect language skills, most students participate in English-taught programs in English and non-English-speaking countries. Depending upon the program, either CU Denver or transfer credit may be earned on approved programs abroad, giving students the opportunity to fulfill degree requirements while living, learning and growing in another culture.
We make every effort to keep global educational opportunities affordable for all CU Denver students. Additionally, scholarships and financial aid may be available depending upon the program and location. Information and advice on scholarships such as Fulbright, NSEP, Gilman and others is also available.
