We are a part of the University of Denver, long respected for its academic excellence and broad range of programs, and Denver and the Rocky Mountain region are home to some of the nation’s world-class arts areas. Our faculty and alumni perform at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, area jazz clubs, and with the Colorado Symphony, Denver Brass, Central City Opera, Opera Colorado, Aspen Music Festival, Bravo! Vail Music Festival, Jazz Repertory Orchestra, and many others.
We encourage students to study and live abroad through the Cherrington Global Scholars program, through which they may develop cross-cultural connections and the new perspectives that come with them. Participating students spend a quarter abroad and still meet all of the requirements of their degree programs on schedule and at no additional cost for tuition, room or board.
We know that the COVID-19 outbreak has cast uncertainty into many aspects of life for people around the globe, and it may be having an impact on your ability to plan with certainty for the beginning of school this fall. The University of Denver has a comprehensive site dedicated to information about the impact of the COVID-19 virus that may be a useful reference during this time. In addition, please know that we’re here in the department to answer any questions you may have as we continue to plan for your arrival on campus this fall! We’ll continue to communicate with updates and information about our program over the coming weeks and months, and know that we’re only a phone call, email, or video chat away.
