The outstanding academic advisors and staff of the undergraduate College Office or the staff of the Graduate School can provide details about our programs.

Duquesne is a friendly, safe place, self-contained, on its own beautiful hilltop, but right next to downtown Pittsburgh, with all the opportunities the city affords for internships and employment.  It is a university large enough to have professors who are at the leading edge of their fields, but small enough that professors know you as an individual.

Key to Duquesne's vision is academic excellence, combined with a spirit of service.  You see that spirit in the way faculty interact with students: they encourage you, they demand your best, and they want you to participate in their research.  You also see the Duquesne spirit in the impressive volunteer work that students give to the community around us, for example, tutoring children in after-school programs, coaching refugees with English, and helping develop a community greenspace.
