About Constantin College

30 majors in the arts, humanities and natural and social sciences

The Constantin College of Liberal Arts is the center of undergraduate education at the University of Dallas. In addition to offering 30 undergraduate academic programs, Constantin College is also home to the Core Curriculum, a course of study focused on the great works of Western civilization that’s taken by all undergraduates, regardless of major, designed to develop critical thinking skills and inspire intellectual inquiry through the rigorous examination of who we are and how we relate to God, nature and each other. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 11:1 and an average class size of 16, the courses in the Core Curriculum provide an amazing atmosphere to develop the intellectual skills that will help you succeed throughout your academic career and the rest of your life. 

Studying in Rome

Constantin College is also home to UD’s Rome Program. This semester abroad — usually taken during the sophomore year — gives students the opportunity to experience firsthand the art, architecture, history and culture of Ancient Greece, the Roman Republic and Empire, the Early Christian Church and Renaissance Italy while staying at our beautiful campus located in the foothills of Rome.
