Feedback from graduate students, some of whom earned their undergraduate degrees at DU:


"The sense of community at Duquesne University is strong. Through my various courses in the school of liberal arts, I felt like my professors genuinely cared about my success in their classes. I knew I wanted that same commitment to my education at the graduate level. I like that my program is a good mix of theory and practice. Through my courses, I feel like I am getting a feel for every aspect of communication from interpersonal communication to professional communication and everything in between."
Alexis Rosen, B.A. ‘12, graduate student, M.A.- Communication program


"As a student balancing graduate level coursework and a full time job, Duquesne University helps me achieve my goals in higher learning with their flexible class offerings. The biotechnology graduate program feeds my desires to explore a professional career dedicated to serving the scientific community worldwide. Our professors engage us with real world experiences which you do not always find in other graduate programs."
Dana Weber, graduate student, M.S.- Biotechnology program


"I chose to return to Duquesne for my master's degree because of Duquesne's history of great education. Duquesne has great professors of Political Science and Public Policy. I like the tight knit, community feeling between the grad students. All the students are cordial, open, and willing to give advice if needed. ‘'
Valone Brown, B.A. ‘12, graduate student, M.A.- Social and Public Policy program


"All of the faculty here are very nice and help us gain the best training for our future careers. I get a lot of help from my professors, academic advisor, career service advisor, and writing center tutor. Additionally, I really liked the events held by the international student office and student organizations... like the fright farm tour during Halloween and ice-skating at PPG ."
