Our foundation in nursing can build your future.
Who we are today has a lot to do with who we were yesterday. Founded more than 140 years ago by the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, Duquesne was built on a core set of values that guides us even now.
As one of the nation’s top Catholic universities, our Spiritan tradition means a lot to us. You’ll see it in the way we treat one another, in the way we learn and in how we view the world. We strive to provide a well-rounded education that will challenge you academically while nourishing your spiritual and ethical development.
Today, Duquesne is home to nine schools of study and serves nearly 10,000 students. We boast a 14:1 student-faculty ratio, with 80 undergraduate programs, 90 master’s, doctoral and professional programs, and 20 post-graduate certificate programs.
