Student Programs

Explore Graduate School

Around 30% of each senior class pursues a graduate program in a variety of disciplines immediately following graduation from the University of Denver. (Many more pursue grad school a few years later.) If your plan is to go to grad school, we are here to help: we offer you many resources to help you research, apply to and practice interviews for graduate programs.

1.   Meet with an Adviser

If you're interested in going to graduate school for law, medicine, or allied health, contact the pre-law, pre-health or pre-allied health adviser to learn more about how best to prepare for those graduate programs. They can be reached at 303.871.2455. For other graduate programs, contact your major adviser.  

2.   Find a Program

Begin your graduate school search. To start this research try one of the many graduate school research resources available to you through the Office of Career Services.

3.   Research Application Timelines

Research your graduate schools of interest to make sure you are on track to meet important application deadlines.

4. Prepare for Admission Exams

Once you determine where you'd like to apply, determine the admissions requirements for each program. While some programs will require that you've completed various academic coursework, most graduate programs will require that you take an admissions exam like the GRE, GMAT, LSAT or MCAT. 

5. Personal Statements and Interview Prep

For personal assistance throughout the process, schedule an appointment with a career counselor to discuss your graduate school options. Career services can review personal statements and essays for graduate school and provide graduate school mock interviews.
