Student & Graduate Reviews

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.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

So far, this program has already taught me a lot, but I feel that the faculty are sometimes more concerned with research that they're conducting rather than providing quite enough resources for students. Finding time between classes, research, and practicum to meet with professors on their schedules can be difficult at times. However, the university is a smaller, community-type campus, and they do offer many opportunities to get involved, and there are several professors within my program to get assistance if needed, so I hope to be more proactive in the coming year.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2016

The smaller class sizes and friendliness of the professors is what made me really want to go to this school. All other pharmacy school viewed me as just a number and another student. I loved how passionate and people orientated the program is.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

This is a great school and a very useful program. Building upon your standard technical degree, this program allows students to learn more about the process of leading within their organizations. The work load is rather extensive at times, however, you are getting a quality degree from a well known university.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I feel very comfident with my professors and their ability to teach me the knowledge that I need to be a successful administror. They program is outstanding with a lot of professors being former administrators. Nothing like having it given to you with real life examples from great teachers. I am excited to get out in the workforce and obtain a job as an administrator. The cons is that Duquesne is very expensive and I don't look forward to paying the tuition costs back.

Graduation Year: 2013

I feel that the program would be more beneficial if there were more performance opportunities for a graduate student in vocal performance.
