Welcome to the University Of Dallas Neuhoff School Of Ministry. The University of
Dallas is a Catholic University in Irving, Texas, nationally recognized for its core
curriculum and liberal arts programs. As the Dean of the School of Ministry, I invite
you to explore these webpages and learn about our pastoral ministry programs and our
highly skilled faculty which are dedicated to both the academic and spiritual formation
of their students.
Our mission is to prepare women and men for pastoral service within the Catholic Church.
In accord with Ex Corde Ecclesiae, our programs offer instruction and formation "by
which Catholic students can, in fulfillment of their baptism, be prepared for active
participation in the life of the Church" (41).
There are three major academic programs in our School:
- Our flagship graduate programs on the master's degree level
- Our Catholic Biblical School and Continuing Education programs, offered in both Spanish and English
- The undergraduate major in pastoral ministry
We also proudly organize the annual Dallas Ministry Conference in the fall which is one of the largest conferences of its kind in the nation. Every
year it attracts thousands who come for enrichment in a variety of fields within pastoral
ministry, including Catholic school education, liturgy, marriage and family and social
The Neuhoff School of Ministry is known for providing its students with a first class
praxis-oriented education in Catholic pastoral ministry that helps to form ministers
that are able to share the ancient tradition of the Catholic faith for the 21st century.
We invite you to be a part of our mission.
