Global Masters Scholars at the University of Denver

 Global Masters Model

A Global Masters Scholars program is an articulated agreement between a DU academic department, a strategic or priority partner institution, and the DU Office of Internationalization where the curriculum is mapped to ensure student success. 

The Global Masters model consists of the first 3 years of undergraduate study taking place at DU, then 1 year of study abroad at the partner institution (DU's fourth year). The 3 years at DU and 1 year of study abroad constitutes a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Denver. The fifth and final year of study will take place at the partner institution, in which upon completion the student will be awarded a Master's degree by the partner institution. Students enrolled at DU can opt into the Global Masters programs if they meet eligibility requirements at each university, DU's study abroad and exchange requirements, and any additional requirements specifically determined for any of the Global Masters programs.
