Founded more than 140 years ago by the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, Duquesne University is the only Spiritan institution of higher education in the United States. Drawing on our Catholic Spiritan heritage, we’ll walk alongside you, connecting you with life-changing people and opportunities so you can build a professional path with purpose.
You'll benefit from a 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio and an academic experience hallmarked by personal attention from an award-winning faculty. In fact, almost half of all classes have 20 or fewer students, which means you'll have plenty of opportunities for direct interaction with your professors who want to help realize your boldest goals.
Duquesne University has a long-standing tradition of working with students who are currently serving or have proudly served the nation. We are a Yellow Ribbon participating school, offering you a variety of degree options for traditional on-campus study, as well as accelerated online bachelor's degrees and online master's degrees, with scholarship options for veterans looking to maximize their benefits.
We understand the value of a team and have assembled a dedicated group of service providers to support our military and veteran students. Each team member understands the unique needs of our active duty, reserve, guard and veteran students and share the same vision to support you through your transition and successful academic trajectory.
As a Duquesne student, you’ll join a peer learning network of military and veteran students across campus and in your virtual learning environments. As a graduate, you’ll connect with more than 98,000 alumni worldwide.
