Why DU

Our students finish their degrees ready to start their careers. 90 percent of undergraduates have a job or are in graduate school within six months of graduating. Most students participate in at least one internship during their time here. Because our classes are small and there are only 11 students per faculty member, you will receive plenty of personal attention to make sure you are on track to accomplish your goals.
