Deeply committed to the recovery and renewal of the Western heritage of liberal arts and the Christian intellectual tradition, studying at the University of Dallas Braniff Graduate School means that you will engage in interdisciplinary scholarly discussions, read the Great Books, and consider timeless questions and contemporary issues in search of principled and transformative wisdom. Each area of study is informed by a unique sense of paideia, the education of the soul, which attends to the person as a whole.
Our unique approach to graduate education – contemporary scholarship grounded in the classical tradition – helps you to think rigorously, creatively, and ethically about your chosen discipline.
The Braniff Graduate School also offers a number of programs and institutes for teachers who desire to deepen their understanding of their disciplines as well as an ongoing series of colloquia, lectures, exhibits and salons for students, faculty, and the intellectually-curious public.
