Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2018

Not really recommended at least until they become more prominent in the area. They are in the middle of a huge health system and because they do NOT have any good relationship, it is extremely difficult to set up contracts once the school is mentioned. Even offices 4+ hours away have no good comments on the school. they are EXTREMELY disorganized, their on-campus is a JOKE (no skills, just clustered chaos). The instructors are very unorganized, they do not hold them to the standards of the students, they are very inconsistent. Look elsewhere! You are only paying for the name and the "catholic" (only they aren't considered religious enough to reap the benefits as an employer as being a "religious institution") tuition is extremely outrageous for the rushed, unorganized and non valuable 'education"

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Duquesne University offers a unique experience as it is located just outside of downtown Pittsburgh. You get the city life, without having to actually live in the city. The university has recently put energy into reviving and renovating campus dorms and the dining experience. Everyone is able to experience the updated dorms, as the university has worked on freshman, sophomore, and upperclassmen living centers. Not only is Duquesne providing students with better living and eating areas, it offers a plethora of academic opportunities. As an Education major, studying abroad was never on my radar. That is until I realized Duquesne offered Spring Break Aways and student teaching abroad. Most education majors cannot study abroad without having to take an extra semester, Duquesne allowed me to study abroad without having to take an extra semester. Amazing location, renovated living spaces for all classes, and unique opportunities make Duquesne a fantastic choice.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2015

I loved the community of Duquesne, but the above average cost without being able to earn a professional job afterwords has affected my opinion. Overall my time on campus was amazing, and I loved my classes and teachers, but I am unsatisfied with my life since leaving the university.

Degree: Biology Teacher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm happy with my decision to go to this small, but academically strong Catholic schooling system. It is much different than most people at my high school would ever go to, most settling at WVU. But I've had such an amazing time meeting new people and experiencing this new part of my life right in the city of Pittsburgh! It's even better because you don't feel the intimidation and rush of actually being in the city, but still can enjoy the sights and sounds. Another thing, going to Duquesne puts you in the middle of about 4 other main schools, making it easy to make new friends and connections for the field you are studying in. It gives us opportunities to be involved in events held at other schools and broadens our ability to learn and succeed. Small classes and a smaller, more compact campus, calls for a closer relationship you could have with your professors and even your peers. Not that it's anything like high school, but it's nice to ask for help and be remembered by name.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

School was ok. I think I would have benefited from going to another institution. School is not really diverse. At all. I understand that diversity is within all aspects, but even minimal aspects of diversity were not expressed. Not even among the faculty and professors.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2011

I was able to participate in undergraduate research and gain valuable experience working in a professors lab. The class sizes were small enough that my professors knew me by name.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2007

I loved Duquesne's campus and location in downtown Pittsburgh. Class sizes were small so I could have a personal relationship with all of my professors and they knew me by name. I was able to take part in undergraduate research in a chemistry lab and receive a lot of hands on experience to prepare me for graduate school, as well as some publications. However, I felt that my chemistry classes did not fully prepare me for the level of graduate school classes (although I think they've redone their curriculum since then). I'm glad I chose Duquesne - it was a great experience for me.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

The first three years are all background information and general electives so the classes can be pretty boring. Once you enter the professional phase the course load becomes much harder but also more interesting.

Degree: Music, General
Graduation Year: 2013

I loved attending Duquesne University! It is currently the top school in the state of PA for my specific major and continues to grow and evolve every year. The resources are up to date and you have access to 3 studios, 2 professional concert halls and 2 large apple computer labs. The Mary Pappert school of Music is also looking to add on over the next few years.
