MSU Denver Office of Graduate Studies
Welcome to the Office of Graduate Studies. “A place where excellence and innovation converge” defines the environment here at Metropolitan State University of Denver. With multiple certificate offerings, eight master’s degree options (and more on the horizon); you are certain to find a program that will enrich your career and inspire a growth mindset.
Graduate students who thrive at MSU Denver are creative, innovative and brave. Our students are unwilling to accept status quo and boldly seek answers that lie outside of traditional margins. If this sounds like you take a look at our programs and “master your future” here with us.
Graduate students can expect to have a rich experience in the City of Denver. MSU Denver is located in the heart of a vibrant, diverse and exciting city—a dynamic center for technology, sports and recreation, health services and the arts. Our programs are fully immersed in the urban environment in which the university is located. Denver represents an international hub for the Mountain region and is the state capitol of Colorado. This global environment amplifies the opportunity for scholarly engagement and practice in all our programs. At MSU Denver we believe in educating the whole student—including encouraging our students to engage in service learning.
COVID-19 Note: Physical mail may be delayed due to the status of campus amid the COVID-19 global pandemic impacting higher education in Colorado. MSU Denver strongly encourages applicants to submit all documents electronically at this time.
