University of Colorado at Boulder

Dept Strength

Solid Foundation

Strong student support and advising; great job placements

We train our students for a dynamic job market and support them as they transition from student to professional.

Our graduate program is consistently ranked among the top two or three US departments in placement of PhD's in academic careers. We are able to fund a higher percentage of our graduate students than most other Arts & Sciences departments, and we have both the highest completion rate and the shortest average time-to-degree of any other Arts & Sciences department at CU Boulder. Our graduate students are also successful in winning external funding for their research and in publishing their research while completing their degrees.

Our undergraduate program includes honors and internship components. We are able to support our undergrads with a number of need and merit based scholarships.
