Braniff Campus Life

Discover a community in pursuit of wisdom.

The Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts, like the university itself, aspires to be a community of learning. We invite all those who wish to continue to cultivate the life of the mind to join us in this pursuit, according to whatever extent your busy life permits. Here, you will find our graduate community and life-long learners engaged in the life of the university outside the classroom through evening lectures, dramatic productions, salon events and art exhibitions.

Additionally, the Braniff Graduate Student Association aims to further the interests of the graduate student body within the University of Dallas community. Sponsoring intellectual events, engaging the graduate community and making available academic conference opportunities are just a few of the activities which stem from its mission.

Join us in the pursuit of wisdom. 

We invite you to explore the links above for further insight about the happenings and resources available to students at the Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts.
