Enrichment Program

Simply for the Love of Learning

The Enrichment Program connects you to the University of Denver's outstanding faculty, facilities, and programming and Denver's rich cultural community through non-credit courses and one-night lectures.

We cater to the curious in the Denver metro area and beyond who want to enjoy evening and weekend classes, either live on Zoom or on campus, in a wide range of subjects: from history and contemporary issues to science, literature, and the arts. The Enrichment Program also offers free lectures through the Back-to-School Sampler series at the beginning of each term (on Zoom) and through the new R1 Research With Impact Lectures (in-person, on campus).
