A long, rich tradition of innovative research:
Work and study with the best. CU-Boulder faculty includes four Nobel laureates, four recipients of the National Medal of Science, 15 Guggenheim Fellows in the past 10 years, 20 recent MacArthur, Packard, and Fulbright Fellows, and 58 members of the national academies of arts and sciences, education, engineering, and sciences.
Graduate ready for your next step by taking advantage of CU-Boulder's many teaching and professional development opportunities.
In an environment where there is a rapidly increasing desire for interdisciplinary and professional skills, receiving multiple master's degrees in complementary fields, or concurrent bachelor's and master's degrees, can be a real asset.
Prepare for the right work environment for you by considering all of your options. CU-Boulder has unique relationships with a number of industry partners and federal labs as well as academic institutions. In a Fall 2005 survey, 85 percent of graduate students indicated that their expected position was directly related to their respective graduate degrees.
Help produce new knowledge while honing your skills. With $454 million in sponsored research awards for fiscal year 2010, CU-Boulder faculty and graduate students are able to conduct world-class research together, with access to state-of-the-art equipment.
