Degrees in Taxation
The Graduate Tax Program at the University of Denver has been a leader in the education of tax professionals for over 40 years. The demand for our graduates continues to increase, along with the complexity of our nation’s tax laws. Our curriculum combines both the law and accounting aspects of tax practice, giving our graduates the ability to provide thoughtful, practical advice to their clients.
We offer an LLM for lawyers, Master of Taxation for accountants and other graduate students, and a flexible online program for those who can’t be here in person.
