High-Impact Learning

The Genius is in the Doing

At the University of Denver, academics are about discovery through experience and learning by doing. As you embark on your 4D Experience, you’ll be empowered to explore what moves you and transform your interests into passions. You'll partner with faculty through inclusive learning environments and work with your fellow DU students to advocate for progress and change. And you'll venture into the world and immerse yourself in new cultures and ideas.

At DU, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to rise above the crowd. If you like to think deeply and work passionately, we look forward to you joining us.

Find your path at one of our five undergraduate schools and colleges.


I love the size of DU. It’s big enough that I could join all these new things but small enough that I wouldn’t be another face getting lost in the crowd.

Study Abroad

Studying abroad at DU is easy. With our Cherrington Global Scholars program, over 70% of our students take classes outside of the U.S., usually at no additional cost.

But most of all, studying abroad is simply an unforgettable experience. You’ll explore new cultures and broaden your mind with the perspectives of those you’re sure to encounter along the way. Take a step with us into a new world and discover where DU's abundance of opportunities and resources can lead you.

Coming back, I definitely think that my worldview has completely changed, and how I think about others. This is going to be a life-changing and incredible experience that you're never gonna have again in a lifetime.

  • Small class

    Small classes, big ideas. The average class size at DU is 24 students, and almost all of our classes have less than 50 students. Learning should be based on conversation and perspective, and you should always have the room to make your voice heard.
