For Great ROI, Invest in Yourself

In a world where we’re constantly paying more for less (hello, inflation!), it’s refreshing to find an opportunity to get more value, dollar-for-dollar, than you expected.

Pursuing a master’s degree, graduate certificate, or other credential is no small investment, especially if you want the assurance of a trusted name like the University of Denver. Fortunately, the value you get from that credential is exponentially rewarding and DU’s University College is built to equip you with the skills you need to reach your goals.

Financial Benefits and Job Security

First and foremost, our students expect their education to unlock bigger earnings. Master’s degree holders earn an average of $86,372 per year, 16% more than those with bachelor’s degrees. Over the course of a lifetime, they’ll earn over $400,000 more. By any measure, that’s a sensational return on investment.

But a graduate credential means more than just a higher paycheck. It means more opportunities and better quality of life. Jobs requiring graduate education are growing at a higher rate than other jobs, which means that once you have your master’s, more doors will potentially be open to you. Furthermore, advanced degree holders see higher rates of employment, so you’re likely to have more security in a job you enjoy.

More Than Money

Value isn’t just measured in dollars and cents. Our graduate certificates and master’s degree programs provide a depth of expertise you can’t get at the undergraduate level. A University College education – focused on hands-on competencies and real-world scenarios – develops specialized skills needed to advance. Our instructors are experts in their fields, and students also gain valuable industry connections.

If you’re seeking to expand your horizons, a University College credential can give you an exceptional education and help you stand out. With four start times per year, you can earn a master’s degree in as little as 18 months.
