Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2018

Duquesne University is an amazing opportunity for education. While I attended school there, I was invested in learning and the teachers were fully invested in teaching. This was something that was very important for me because I am dedicated to learning how to become an amazing teacher. I was a student in the Undergraduate School of Education and within my time there I learned so much about myself, the school and teaching. Being a student there was amazing because the opportunities were endless. I would recommend any student to look at this university if they are dedicated to learning and being apart of an amazing campus. The school as a whole has so much energy and life. There are endless ways to be involved and countless opportunities to learn more about so many things. Duquesne University taught me so much about myself. Any student will be happy with their decision to go there!

Good first year experience with classes, became more difficult as I progressed into doing only research

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The Masters in Music program at Duquesne was much more rewarding than my undergraduate degree in music ed at IUP, because I found the faculty to have much higher standards in terms of both education and moral values. I was treated as an adult, & with respect, the entire time. I wish I could say the same for my undergraduate experience. However, the faculty is all new at IUP, & of higher caliber, in my opinion, than when I attended in the 90's. Duquesne has a much better music program. I just wish I had the opportunity to perform there, rather than only research, but such is a masters program.

College was a very wise decision for me, but it is not the right choice for everyone. There are many occupations that do not require a college diploma for a good amount of pay.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

This was definitely a program where you get out what you put in. In other words, it's a program where students can coast through, but as a result end up with a superficial and cursory education. But there are resources for students who want to branch out from or delve deeper into the course offerings, and that will maximize the value of the degree.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

Duquesne in general is an excellent university. When I entered the physical therapy program, I committed myself to six years of being on the same campus. People often asked me how I was going to survive staying in the same place for so long, but the answer always seemed easy to me. I fell in love with Duquesne the moment I stepped foot onto campus. I fell more in love when I met fellow physical therapy students and the physical therapy faculty. I have found a home in the physical therapy program at Duquesne. Not only are the faculty extremely knowledgeable, but they genuinely care about each and every student. I value the education I have received thus far, and I look forward to what is to come. I would not hesitate to recommend Duquesne University or their physical therapy program to anyone I meet.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

When accepted to Duquesne University, I was exploring my options and figured I would take a chance. When I was brought in for an interview and then learned of my acceptance, I couldn't be more excited. I reached out to Alumna who I knew among my colleagues and they were helpful with their insights. I have had wonderful experiences with all professors in the program so far. Each professor offers something different to the coursework and they challenge you to think for yourself while learning. Every course can be related to what you will experience while Counseling others in the outside world. Not only do you gain an education, learn from top Professors, but you learn a little more about yourself that you never knew about. Plus, the friendships you can make throughout the program no matter if you decide to graduate in 2 years, 2.5 years, or even 3 years they will last a life time. Everyone is supportive of each other and has the same goal, to graduate and make an impact in the lives of others.
