But learning isn't limited to what happens in the classroom. With more than 200 student organizations, study abroad programs, internships and experiential learning, students have many opportunities to find their life's passion, be of service to others and make life-long friends.

A Great Place to Learn and Live

From Academic Walk in the heart of our 50-acre campus, students enjoy a traditional collegiate setting and the safety of a campus set apart from its surroundings. And downtown Pittsburgh, voted one of America's most livable cities, is just steps away, making it easy for students to take advantage of sports, cultural and recreational programs, as well as internships, clinical experiences and post-grad job opportunities.

Education for the Mind, Heart and Spirit

Duquesne, a nationally ranked, top-tier Catholic university, was built on a core set of values that guide us today. You can depend on Duquesne to provide the support that will help your student succeed, from settling into college life freshman year to preparing to enter the work world upon graduation.
