As part of the Duquesne University family, the years that your child spends on our Bluff will be some of their most memorable and influential. This is an exciting time, full of many triumphs, and we are here to support your family from day one through graduation and beyond. We work hard to make sure each of our students enjoys a positive educational experience and develops the knowledge and skills needed for future success.

As a parent, you want to make sure your child is attending an institution known for academic excellence, but also one that will be a supportive second home. Rest assured that the decision to attend Duquesne is a smart one.

At Duquesne, academics always come first. With nine schools that offer 181 different academic programs, we're certain your student will find his or her niche. Students enjoy the our park-like campus, one of the safest around, but just steps away, the hustle and bustle of downtown Pittsburgh awaits with a wealth of opportunities for professional and cultural growth.
