Bachelor’s Degrees, Concentrations and Pre-Professional Preparation

Programs designed for passionate learners, critical thinkers, relentless truth-seekers and future leaders.

With a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio, a shared Core curriculum and a world-class faculty committed to teaching, the University of Dallas offers our undergraduates a unique opportunity to pursue their intellectual passions in a truly supportive environment. While students can pursue their own scholarly interests in our 29 majors, all undergraduates share a number of common experiences during their studies. All students—regardless of major—begin their studies in our Core curriculum based on the great works of Western culture, and most participate in our semester abroad in the Rome Program during their sophomore year.
