University of Colorado - Denver is the perfect place to continue your education and pursue your goals by attaining a graduate degree! The instructors are top notch, and the programs are designed with your success in mind. I'm able to continue working full-time while going to school in a hybrid format - a combination of evenings in person and on-line. Not to mention the fabulous location in beautiful downtown Denver!

I am in the Responsive Literacy Education Masters program and it has been such a wonderful experience. All of the professors are so focused on you, making sure you are learning and not just completing assignments, and they are always there for you to talk to. They encourage you to continue education, be the best educator you can be, and they want nothing more than for you to succeed. They work with you if needed to make sure you are getting the learning out of the assignment, even if you are stressed because you have conferences all week. The program is built around being able to be a full-time teacher and I would recommend this program to any educator I know.
My experience at CU Denver has been completely different than my experience at CU Boulder. The campus is way more diverse and I feel like I have a community at CU Denver. I am not sure if it is because my cohort was very small and it allowed us to spend a lot of quality time together to get to learn about each other. I also appreciated the help I got from professors that knew I was a first generation graduate student. It meant a lot to me that they understood that I might not know as much as other students know regarding how graduate school works.
