AT A GLANCE
Duquesne University’s (DU) well-rounded education underscores academic excellence and ethical development. Students are formed to become self-aware, career-ready professionals who have an empathic vigour to serve the world’s needs. Students are guided passionately by DU’s faculty who are comprised of scholars known for a high level of research productivity.
At #40 among the Best Value Schools list of U.S. News & World Report, DU is renowned for both academics and research. It offers 80 undergraduate degree programs as well as 85 master’s, doctoral and professional programs across 9 schools of study. Learning is maximised by a 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio and an average class size of 28.
Diversity is one of the pillars of Duquesne that makes it a vibrant, transformative learning environment, founded on the principle of welcoming all and excluding none. The rich mixture of viewpoints and perspectives is made possible by the different races, religions, ethnic groups and socioeconomic backgrounds among students, faculty and staff.
The campus itself is a beautiful, safe and self-contained site that has a lot of green, open spaces and offers a majestic view of the city skyline. Located in Pittsburgh—ranked as one of the best student cities in the US—Duquesne is just steps away from the City of Champions’ cultural, historical, food, entertainment and sports scenes.
Duquesne University is an EduCo International partner university.
