Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

It's one of the best rated schools in the area and nationally. DUQ is adult centered, meaning they understand the students are actually working adults with families and responsibilities. They understand life happens and have the flexibility for those life events. The resources available are amazing to help all students to succeed. DUQ offers flexibility of online programs, campus close enough to utilize library and other resources.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I'm excited to begin my graduate studies at Duquesne. So far, the faculty has been supportive and very accessible to me. My only complaint is the cost of tuition and the limited availability of assistantships to help pay for tuition.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

Duquesne is located in Pittsburgh, PA, a beautiful and diverse city with great affordable living. The program can be challenging based on the amount of material covered in one weekend but the value of the degree will be worth it.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

This program has a great reputation and prestige. Most of the professors care about your success and are willing to help in academics or career advice as needed. The program does not aid its students in having a social life outside of academics, as many other programs do. It also gives limited support to students in research outside of classes. Overall it is a good program but could be improved in student support.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2012

During my time with Duquesne, I was on campus for only a short time at the beginning and end of the program, however there was never a time where I felt like an outsider. The staff, students and faculty were open and welcoming to all comers. Really fabulous experience.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

This graduate program is really for the scholarly practitioner. You are expected to be working while you are pursuing your studies, and you work and research should be feeding each other.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

The Duquesne Pharmacy weekend program is perfect for my schedule because it allows me to balance time with work, family and school. Class size is small (~35-40) compared to traditional pharmacy programs. There are not many extracurricular activities during the weekend so it is hard to get involved in campus activities. However, there are a number of activities and professional organizations to join for students who can adjust their work schedule during the week.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

This is a good program for those who want to make a difference for kids who are struggling in school, for whatever reason. There are some pros, like having a faculty mentor, good quality classes, and immediate experience in the schools. However, the cons are that communication is lacking between faculty and students regarding expectations and the sequence of events of the program, requiring students to do a lot of digging to figure out what comes next.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2015

Duquesne University is a beautiful, secluded campus that sits on top of the stunning city of Pittsburgh. With a faculty that makes themselves available to students, and a challenging courseload, Duquesne's pharmacy program has given me the ability to explore all sectors in my future career, while enabling me to enjoy my experience with life long friends. We are able to have the best of both worlds on a campus with new englad- like brick buildings and beautiful landscapes, while at the same being a few short blocks from the heart of the city of Pittsburgh. With numerous teaching hospitals and other medical universities nearby, the possibilities for a grad student are endless.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Duquesne's JD Program is highly ranked and very competitive in the most important aspect of practicing law: Legal Writing. Their program is intense and the professors are passionate about their work. In a market with too many lawyers and not enough jobs, an education from Duquesne can set you apart. Good writing skills are difference between a winning and a losing Brief and Motion, or an associate and a partner.
