Named after one of our early benefactors, the Constantin College of Liberal Arts offers
undergraduate degrees in the arts, humanities, liberal arts and sciences. It is the
largest college at UD, featuring 30 majors and nearly as many undergraduate concentrations.
Established in 1966 as the Graduate School of Management (GSM), the college of business
was created in 2003 from the merger of the former GSM and the growing undergraduate
business program. The college was renamed in 2013 to the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College
of Business. It has been accredited by the AACSB and has been designated as a Center of Academic Excellence by the National Security
Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security for Cybersecurity. The college
offers Doctor of Business Administration, Master of Business Administration and Master
of Science degrees in accounting, business analytics, cybersecurity, finance, information
& technology management and a Bachelor of Arts in business degree.
Established in 1966 with a grant from the Blakley-Braniff Foundation, the Braniff
Graduate School offers graduate degrees in American studies, classics, classical education,
English and literature, fine arts, humanities, leadership philosophy, politics, psychology
and theology. It also offers the Catholic Teacher Certificate, certifying distinctive
preparation for teaching in Catholic schools, and is home to the Institute of Philosophic
Studies, the doctoral-degree-granting entity of the University of Dallas Braniff Graduate
The Neuhoff School of Ministry is the graduate school of theological studies and pastoral
ministry at the University of Dallas, offering master’s degrees in theological studies,
pastoral ministry and catechetical ministry. In addition, the school offers a wide
range of continuing education programs for adults interested in in-depth exploration
of their faith as well as deacon formation programs in both English and Spanish. The
Neuhoff School of Ministry also hosts the annual Dallas Ministry Conference, an event
attended by thousands of ordained and lay people from around the world.
To found the famous Core curriculum of the University of Dallas, as an education "best for the individual," Donald and Louise Cowan looked to John Henry Newman's The Idea of a University. He unapologetically promotes the Western classics -- precisely because so few know our own culture well enough to appreciate the depth of any other.
This summer, the University of Dallas invites students, alumni, faculty and staff to join its first-ever tour abroad of Russia, led by Professor of Physics Richard Olenick and Affiliate Instructor of Spanish, French and Italian Irina Rodriguez. From June 8 to June 16, 2020, Olenick and Rodriguez will guide participants through the cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg, taking them on a cultural and literary tour of the "Russian soul."
No longer relegated to the damp lower level, the Cowan-Blakley Memorial Library's Rare Books Room has for the past two years occupied a prime spot on the second floor, where there used to be study carrels. The room, made of glass walls, is normally locked and only opened by appointment, but on Sept. 26, the library hosted an open house for faculty and staff to come and examine these treasures.
