About us

The Economics Department at the University of Colorado Denver offers degree programs ranging from BA in Economics to PhD in Health Economics; we also offer several dual degree programs at the bachelor and master’s levels. All our programs are classified as STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields, which offers international students the advantage of the opportunity to apply for up to three years of optional practical training (OPT) in the US after graduation. The Department consists of 25 full-time faculty members teaching on the Denver and Beijing campuses and serving approximately 80 PhD/MA/MS graduate students and 500 undergraduate majors. Our Denver campus is located in downtown Denver, near the historical Larimer Square and retail and business districts; our Beijing campus is offered in cooperation with China Agricultural University in Beijing’s college district.
