University College Learning Outcomes

Critical Thinking

Students analyze arguments and issues rationally, develop cohesive, logical reasoning patterns, understand assumptions and biases underlying particular positions, and identify weak or unsound arguments.

Creative Thinking

Students develop, invent, or organize novel, aesthetic, constructive ideas or products, stressing the intuitive aspects of thinking as much as the rational, and emphasizing the use of known information or material to generate new possibilities.


Students use appropriate models to choose a best response among several options after consideration of facts or ideas, possible alternatives, probable consequences, and social and personal values. They are able to evaluate the most effective response and justify their decision.

Effective Communication

Students write, speak, listen effectively in their personal, professional, and public interactions, within large, small, formal, informal, interpersonal, and public groups, and as individuals in a democratic and multicultural society.

Get a Return on Your Educational Investment

Listing a University College degree really helped me get my foot in the door in the IT field in Denver. It shows employers that you are striving to make yourself valuable to them. University College absolutely did deliver on my expectations for my degree. I'm able to earn a higher salary and I am also able to reach out to clients and have a firm belief and understanding of cultural awareness and how to deal and work with different cultures. I think the return on investment for me is very tangible. When I started my master's to now - it's about a 40% salary increase for me. It was such a great advantage to be able to learn something one week and then, apply it at my job a couple of weeks later. My salary has significantly increased. I was someone who was working in the field at the time, a junior program manager when I first started and the degree itself helped me to elevate my career into program manager. It helped me get a higher-level role and it helped me secure a better life for myself. I believe my future looks very bright because of my University College experience. It's something I can leverage - not only with a degree but also, to keep growing my business in other areas. I absolutely love what I do. The return on investment of being plugged into this community has opened up doors for me that I'm certain wouldn't have been open to me had I not completed my master’s through University College.
