University of Denver Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (14)
University of Denver is a fantastic academic school. It has an amazing campus and continuously has so many activities going on around or at the university. The educators are fantastic and those in student services could not be more helpful! I am so grateful for the opportunity that I had to attend there. My undergraduate degree was influential in helping me continue my education in graduate school in which I am attending currently.
DU offers a high quality education and has many opportunities available. The campus is beautiful and you can't beat Colorado!
The University of Denver was an excellent choice for graduate school. With most graduate level classes that I needed being offered in the late afternoon or evening, it allowed me to continue working while obtaining my advanced degree. The campus is a beautiful mix of historical and modern buildings just south of downtown Denver and is very convenient to many of the best things about living in Denver.
There is not another school in Colorado that I could imagine would provide as extensive of an education as the University of Denver. The small class sizes are incredibly conducive to learning. The largest class I had was a general requirement and had eighty kids in the class. Overall, almost all of the professors are incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and concerned about their students' learning. I enjoyed the University of Denver so much that I'm choosing to go back to their law school this fall.
It's a great experience to expand your horizons. It also allows you to mature both intellectually and socially in a safe environment.
Facilities are nice and new, however, I don't think it was worth it to attend. I wish I would have selected a state school instead to avoid debt. My program was heavily reliant on adjuncts who were unprepared. Basic educational needs, such as consistent Internet or technology to access resources was pretty bad. I got what I needed, got a degree and got a job, but if I could go back in time, I would not choose it again.
My program was more about interpersonal work than individual effort. DU is a nice school for grad students. It isn't as well-known out of state as it feels when you live in Colorado. It is very expensive and maybe not worth the money/loans if you aren't getting a degree that will lead to a high-paying job (ex. law school.)
Professors are very knowledgable in their respective fields. Most class sizes are small, approximately 15-30 people with the exception being introductory classes (i.e., introduction to psychology, introduction to sociology, etc.) which are approximately 100 individuals.
I don't regret getting my master's degree, but I'm not sure that I got the value that I paid for. About 65% of my professors were completely competent to teach at the graduate level. The course content was relevant and helpful in preparing me for my career about 60% of the time.
It was a good school, but maybe not worth how expensive it was.
