The New Directions Program offers an MA in applied Political Science at the University of Colorado Denver. We prepare students to work in several areas such as public agencies, labor movement groups, public policy institutes and community-based organizations. Since our students come from a variety of backgrounds/careers/experiences, our courses are delivered through a weekend program format that provides flexibility for working professionals and other non-traditional students. Our instructors are practitioners in their respective fields, skilled in providing our students with opportunities to learn practical content, develop relevent tools, and apply effective strategies within their professional environment.
