• JUST THE RIGHT SIZE: We’re big enough that you have many options for majors and minors, across 9 schools and colleges. We also have 250+ student organizations to deepen your experience. And our student population is the right size to make meaningful connections with faculty and staff mentors and to make lifelong friends.

  • LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: You will take classes and make friends on a park-like campus with access to a thriving city with amazing internship and job opportunitiesright next door. Pittsburgh’s big city life has a small-town feel, and is within a day’s drive of 50 percent of the United States’ population. You also have huge opportunities to learn in locations around the world. And, you’ll have access to a committed network of alumni who can connect you to opportunity.

  • BIGGER GOALS: It’s our joy to help you dig into what you’re good at and discover why that’s good for the world. It’s what our Catholic Spiritan founders intended—to provide an education that expands horizons, is grounded in authentic relationships and helps you learn to walk alongside others to make a difference. A Duquesne education lets you pursue everything you need and more than you can imagine.

  • EQUITY AND OPPORTUNITY BEGIN AT HOME: We are deeply embedded in local communities, working side-by-side to address systemic challenges in health, education, legal access, economic development, industry and more. And on campus, we embrace inclusion and ethical development as a major component of academic life. You will gain not just knowledge and skills from your education but needed perspective to work and live as a positive force in your communities.

  • LEARNING TOGETHER: Our faculty are genuine teacher-scholars. They work in communities near and far and collaborate with students, community members, government and business as they pursue their work. Their curiosity and tenacity make their classrooms exciting places to be—and they are equally enthusiastic about your future.

  • OUR OUTCOMES ARE FANTASTIC: Whether measured by employment rates or graduate school admissions, various rankings, pass rates of major exams like the bar exam(law), NCLEX (nursing), NPTE (physical therapy), NAPLEX (pharmacy) and others, Duquesne students achieve the bigger goals they pursue.
