STEM-related Graduate Programs at Colorado State University

It has been predicted by the U.S. Department of Labor estimates that there are over 1.2 million job openings in STEM-related fields. Because of this, STEM education programs and degrees are a high-priority today. STEM graduates work in a wide variety of fields, and as such, Colorado State University has more than 50 STEM-related undergraduate degree programs for students to remain competitive and an ever evolving STEM workforce.

Below, we have organized our STEM-related undergraduate majors by College, noting the academic department within which the major resides. Many of our majors also have concentration areas that allow students to go more in depth in specific topic areas, and these are noted below as well.

CSU also has STEM-related minors for students who would like to select a secondary academic discipline as well as graduate degrees for students who have already obtained an undergraduate degree. If you would like to learn more about these undergraduate minors, click here. If you would like to learn more about STEM Graduate Degrees at Colorado State University, click here.

Important note for international students: International students with a F-1 visa earning a degree in a STEM field can qualify for the OPT STEM Extension. However, not all STEM majors qualify. Please see the official list of OPT STEM Extension qualifying majors, produced by the US Department of Homeland Security, found here. The corresponding “CIP Code” should be found on your I-20. For more questions about the OPT STEM Extension, please contact the CSU Office of International Programs.

Program: EXTREME ULTRAVIOLET AND OPTICAL SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY GRADUATE INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES PROGRAM

Department: Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Extreme Ultraviolet Science and Technology Graduate interdisciplinary studies program is designed to serve individuals who are seeking to gain knowledge and experience in the generation and applications of coherent extreme ultraviolet or soft x-ray light. This type of light holds great potential in applications in nanotechnology, nanoelectronics, photochemistry, material science, and biology. While in the past the use of coherent EUV light required a trip to a national facility, new developments in compact sources make it widely available. The objective of the program is to provide scientists or engineers many of the fundamentals required to generate or proficiently make use of this portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Program: INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES PROGRAM

Department: International Development Board and the Office of International Programs

The International Development Graduate Interdisciplinary Studies Program focuses on the interconnected process of social, political, economic, cultural and environmental change. Students will learn theories, approaches and practices of international development followed by multi-lateral, bi-lateral, and non-governmental organizations. Students take 12 credits including a common course to learn the history, theories, applications, and impacts of development. Electives challenge students to examine development practices from multiple disciplinary viewpoints and encourage critical thinking. The program prepares students for a variety of employment opportunities related to international development, including volunteer work or employment in international and advocacy organizations, or business, policy and research groups. The program encourages critical thinking and responsible action in an interconnected world. The International Development Graduate Interdisciplinary Studies Program is open to graduate students from all colleges and departments.
