This is where your DU journey begins. All students take liberal arts courses through the College, making us the central hub where many of the University's disciplines intersect. Often, students go on to major or minor in one of our programs. As the largest and most diverse academic unit at DU, we provide the fundamental skills to think critically, communicate strategically, solve problems, pursue passions and make meaningful contributions to the community. 

Our integral position within the University comes with invaluable resources and connections. These, combined with our diverse academic portfolio, give us the opportunity to offer a visionary educational experience.
