Education Beyond the Classroom

We believe in preparing our students to improve not just their own lives, but their world. At DU, you'll be given chances to work outside the classroom and use your education to help create and strengthen healthy communities.

Our Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning (CCESL) provides opportunities for community involvement outside your classroom. Learn about sustainability while helping jump-start local clean energy initiatives, or team up with classmates to tackle homelessness.

We also want to help start your career. With internships taken for college credit, you can gain valuable job experience before you even leave school. In Denver's thriving entrepreneurial market, there are plenty of opportunities to enhance your class work with real-world experience—all you need is the drive to make it happen.

During their time at DU, graduate students gain real-world on-the-job experience from professional services undertaken as part of class work, as well as from managing and hosting events on campus. Studying abroad also has expanded applications for graduate students, who can apply for funding and confront challenges like water availability and conservation.
