MSU Denver

Academic Program Review evaluates MSU Denver’s educational programs offered in a consistent, thorough way for the purpose of assessing the academic quality, efficiency, and accountability of the programs. Program reviews operate within the context of state accountability systems and the process assists the University in maintaining accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission.

For the purpose of Academic Program Review, the definition of a program is an academic group with a set credit bearing curriculum as defined by industry standards and managed by institutional accreditation.

Altogether, MSU Denver students may choose from more than 200 academic options, including concentrations within majors, the individualized degree program, and teacher preparation in early childhood, elementary, K-12, secondary, or special education.

Academic Program Review encompasses undergraduate and graduate program options offered by the University.
