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.
Edisson Ramos, BA '20, is one of many students receiving assistance from UD's COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund, which has currently raised nearly $90,000; the first of the funds were distributed last week to help students make their April rent, and Director of Financial Aid Taryn Anderson, BA '07, is in the process of distributing a second wave to students with housing or food insecurity or in need of Wi-Fi or other resources for online learning.
In our current condition, with most of the U.S. sheltering in place and/or learning and working from our homes, it's hard to imagine that just 20 days ago, teachers and those aspiring to be teachers gathered together for the fourth annual Excellence in Education conference at the University of Dallas, organized, run and sponsored by UD's Education Department, but so they did, and so we will all do -- gather together, that is -- some day again.
Many of you have reached out to ask what you can do to help, and I am grateful for your generosity. In response, I have created the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to immediately help UD students in this rapidly evolving situation.
