Today's students, including more 1,000 international students from more than 80 nations, come seeking an affordable education to prepare them for a wide range of career choices. What they discover is a world of opportunities to explore new possibilities, new ideas and new perspectives to prepare them for life. Our 200 academic programs, 60 graduate degrees and education abroad choices on six continents emphasize hands-on learning through community engagement and close interaction with professors.

SCSU offers a unique opportunity for international students, through providing qualified international students with the Academic and Cultural Sharing Scholarship.

For the first time ever in Denver, undergraduate students will be able to earn a degree in architecture—thanks to the brand-new Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BS Arch) degree now offered from CU Denver’s College of Architecture and Planning (CAP). CAP at CU Denver is now the only college in Colorado offering comprehensive degrees in design and planning of the built environment, from undergraduate through accredited professional master’s degrees to the doctorate. The college offers instruction in architecture, landscape architecture, urban and regional planning, urban design and historic preservation.

The discipline of design and its fields of architecture, planning, landscape architecture and environmental conservation/preservation deal with formulating solutions to many of the problems people face in their homes, communities, cities and geographic regions. Architecture focuses on the design of buildings and the spaces between buildings, while planning is concerned with the larger scale of neighborhoods, cities and regions. Landscape architecture and environmental conservation/preservation focus on both of these scales.

The architects, landscape architects, urban designers, and planners of today’s successful firms work in multi-disciplinary teams. The College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) follows this approach with an Integrative Design vision. Your study path exposes you to a variety of disciplines while allowing you to choose an area of emphasis and explore your personal interests.
