The University of Dallas (UD) is a Catholic liberal arts university. It was established as a four year institution by the Sisters of Saint Mary of Namur in 1956.
UD has four academic divisions: the Constantin College of Liberal Arts, the Satish and Yasmin Gupta College of Business, the Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts and the Ann and Joe O Neuhoff School of Ministry.
Eighty-three per cent of faculty hold a PhD or the equivalent terminal degree in their field. With a student to faculty ratio of just 10:1, UD’s attendees have the chance to discuss topics closely with expert teachers.
All undergraduates participate in the core liberal arts curriculum, a two-year course revolving around great works of Western literature and arts. The core curriculum culminates in a semester abroad in Rome, Italy, where students learn about the roots of Western civilisation first hand with a look at classical history and architecture. The UD college in Rome serves as a base for students to take once-in-a-lifetime educational trips to locations including Greece, Florence and Venice.
Since 1973, UD has run its Capstone Consulting Experience, through which Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) students get to work on a real consultancy project for a client.
UD’s campus is located in the town of Irving, Texas, on the edge of Dallas. The many attractions, events and internship opportunities of downtown Dallas are just 15 minutes away, and the local airport is only 10 miles from campus.
