The graduate catalog describes the graduate programs offered by Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) and the policies, procedures, and requirements that govern those programs. The 2023-2024 Metropolitan State University of Denver Graduate Catalog is considered the source for academic and programmatic requirements for students entering programs during the Fall 2023, Spring 2024, and Summer 2024 semesters. Prospective students are also encouraged to contact the Graduate Director  for the program of interest for additional information.

The purpose of the Metropolitan State University of Denver Graduate Catalog is to provide current and accurate information about Metropolitan State University of Denver for prospective students, faculty and administrative officers, students currently enrolled, and for other education or allied agencies. Information found within the catalog does not represent binding contracts between Metropolitan State University of Denver and students. The university reserves the right at any time, without advance notice, to: (a) withdraw or cancel classes, courses, and programs; (b) change fee schedules; change the academic calendar; (c) change admission and registration requirements; (d) change the regulations and requirements governing instruction in, and graduation from, the university; and (e) change any other regulations affecting students. Changes shall go into effect whenever the proper governing bodies so determine and shall apply not only to prospective students but also to those who are degree seeking and non-degree seeking at that point in time. When economic and other conditions permit, the university tries to provide advance notice of such changes. In particular, when an instructional program is to be withdrawn, the university will make every reasonable effort to ensure that students are able to complete the graduation requirements. The courses contained in this catalog do not preclude or limit the university in its offerings for any semester or session nor do they restrict the university to the time block (semester) represented by the approved academic calendar.

Although this catalog was prepared using the best information available at the time, all information is subject to change without notice. The university claims no responsibility for errors that may have occurred during the production of this catalog.
