Get to Know One of America's Most Vibrant Cities!

Duquesne University truly enjoys a location like no other! While our campus is in a beautiful park-like setting, we're located just steps away from one of America's most vibrant and livable cities! This location provides a tremendous advantage to our students, both inside the classroom and beyond as it relates to career opportunities.

As a center for activity and entertainment, Pittsburgh may be one of the best-kept secrets around. With its museums and galleries, terrific restaurants, champion sports teams, and outdoor recreation activities, Pittsburgh has something for everyone.  Visit our Pittsburgh Accolades page to see what other media including The Economist, Travel Channel and Forbes have to say about our city!

Unparalleled Access

The professors at Duquesne have strong ties to multi-national corporations, hospital systems, start-ups, school systems and non-profit organizations.  They bring their real-world expertise to you in the classroom.  From music courses taught by members of the Pittsburgh Symphony to business electives taught by Fortune 500 executives, your graduate experience will be deepened through our connections to the city.

Additionally, our location will provide you with countless opportunities for real-world experience and career opportunities.  You will gain practical experience through fieldwork, research projects, and internships.  Opportunities such as our Law School's Tribone Center for Clinical Legal Education, Mylan School of Pharmacy's Residency and Fellowship programs and the MA in Communication Graduate Internship Program are just a few of the examples you will find across our graduate programs.  Given this level of access, and the University's strong reputation for academic excellence, it's no surprise that many of our graduates gain full-time employment with organizations in the city and region.

Work Hard, Play Hard!

As a graduate student, you will be able to discover the region's many cultural and recreational offerings.  World-class museums, Pittsburgh's Cultural District, nationally recognized restaurants as well as our city's sporting venues are all just steps away from campus.  Want to be away from the city?  The region has many biking, hiking, running, skiing, and watersport opportunities through organizations such as Venture Outdoors and Pittsburgh Sports Monster
