For more than 125 years the University of Colorado Boulder has provided an array of opportunities for students to pursue graduate-level education.
CU-Boulder established its first graduate program in 1883 when it began offering the degrees Master of Arts and Master of Science. Today CU graduate students work on groundbreaking research alongside Nobel laureates, former astronauts, trend-setting artists and musicians, climatologists, educators, civic leaders and many others.
Fanning out from campus labs to all corners of the world, CU graduate students conduct research on topics ranging from designing simple water purification systems in developing nations like Thailand, to studying Roman imperial architecture in Italy. With unlimited opportunities at their disposal, CU students are making their mark in the world.
The school's national reputation is also stellar. Six CU-Boulder graduate specialty programs were ranked in the top 10 nationally and numerous placed in the top 50 in U.S. News & World Report's 2013 edition of America's Best Graduate Schools. Twenty CU-Boulder doctoral programs also were ranked in the top 20 in a National Research Council study released Sept. 28.
