Build a Solid Foundation
Every undergraduate student in every school of study here at Duquesne takes a series of courses that emphasize intellectual and moral development through the study of the liberal arts. In addition to building skills for later success, our Bridges curriculum allows you to study a wide variety of subjects and graduate with the richest possible academic experience.
Learn From the Best
While studying at Duquesne, you'll enjoy a low (13:1) student-to-faculty ratio, and in small classes, you get the personal attention needed to achieve your best. Most importantly, our faculty exemplify the ideal of the teacher-scholar. This means your professors are committed to providing an exceptional learning experience. They are top-notch teachers, but they also value and participate in scholarship and research, making important contributions to their fields.
In fact, many students—both graduate and undergraduate—have the chance to assist their professors with research projects that are changing the world around us. The Carnegie Foundation even classified Duquesne as one of only seven Catholic universities in the nation with a "research university with high research activity" distinction.
Prepare for anything
Your academic preparation will provide you an education that’s exactly what you need, and more than you could ever have imagined. Students tell us again and again that they leave Duquesne prepared for anything, and the outcomes they achieve speak for themselves. You can expect to feel ready for your next steps after your time at the University.
