Student participants will enroll in two master's-level, elective courses offered by the Master in International Affairs program at Graduate Institute during the fall semester of the program year. Each course is worth 6 European credits and is held 2 hours/week over 14 weeks. Each course is equivalent to a five-credit course offered at the Korbel School and will transfer as such. Students may also earn up to five credits through an approved internship placement with a Geneva-based organization. In total, students will be able to earn 15 credit hours toward their degree while participating in the Geneva program.
Examples of the courses that may be offered by the Graduate Institute can be found here. Note that Korbel student participants will not be guaranteed enrollment in specific courses. Rather, the Graduate Institute will inform the Korbel School of courses open to students in the spring of each program year, and working with student participants, the Korbel School will inform the Graduate Institute of the top four (4) course selections of each student participant. The Graduate Institute will then place students in their chosen courses according to availability. This arrangement means that Korbel students will commit to participating in the Geneva program without knowing which elective courses will be offered to them by the Graduate Institute.
While in Geneva, students will be enrolled at the Graduate Institute as visiting, non-degree seeking students. This will allow students to have full access to all services and resources at the Graduate Institute. Per this arrangement, students will also be subject to the Graduate Institute student conduct policies during the duration of the program.
Tuition and fees will continue to be paid directly to the University of Denver and students will continue to be bound by the University of Denver honor code. Any questions related to tuition, fees, or financial aid may be directed to Jennifer Quinn, Assistant Director of Graduate Student Aid at the University of Denver.
