Global Masters: University of Western Australia

Global Masters Programs in Biological Science, Biotechnology, and Business Logistics. More coming!

A Global Masters Scholars program is an articulated agreement between a DU academic department, a strategic or priority partner institution, and the DU Office of Internationalization where the curriculum is mapped to ensure student success. The Global Masters model consists of the first 3 years of undergraduate study taking place at DU, then 1 year of study abroad at the partner institution (DU's fourth year). The 3 years at DU and 1 year of study abroad constitutes a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Denver. The fifth and final year of study will take place at the partner institution, in which upon completion the student will be awarded a Master's degree by the partner institution. Students enrolled at DU can opt into the Global Masters programs if they meet eligibility requirements at each university, DU's study abroad and exchange requirements, and any additional requirements specifically determined for any of the Global Masters programs. With University of Western Australia, we have developed the following Global Masters Programs: 

  • Global Masters in Business Information & Logistics Management 

  • Global Masters in Biological Sciences (Specializations in Conservation Biology, Ecology, Marine Biology, and Zoology) 

  • Global Masters in Biotechnology (Specializations in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Genetics & Genomics, and Environmental Biotechnology)

  • Global Masters in Environmental Science (Specializations in Environmental Management, Marine & Coastal, Catchments & Water, Environmental Rehabilitation, and Sensing & Environmental Data)
