    Applied Physics Concentration

    USD 36,000 Tuition Fee

    Students at the University of Dallas may find that traditional departmental boundaries are not adequate to describe the breadth of their interest, especially when post-baccalaureate plans are considered. Though they may choose a major in Mathematics or Philosophy or Biology, they may also have an interest in bolstering their education with further applications and models of Physics. In addition, a student who seeks secondary certification with a science composite would find the Applied Physics Concentration useful in fulfilling certification requirements. The concentration in Applied Physics seeks to provide students the opportunities to pursue new studies that relate to their major and life interests.

    Art

    USD 36,000 Tuition Fee

The experience and practice of visual art creates an awareness of these basic truths, and especially of the imaginal and creative aspects of life, which is vital in the formation of the complete human being. The art program therefore seeks to develop the critical aesthetic faculties within the student and to nurture that knowing and judging capacity of the human spirit.

    Classics

    USD 36,000 Tuition Fee

    Because of its attention to thought and word and deed, classical education has been held up as a model for western civilization, and its utility is no less now than it has ever been. Students who major in Classics, therefore, may apply their training in all the ways that their predecessors have - specifically to work, such as a professional career in law, medicine, public service, the clergy, or teaching, and more generally to life as a whole, since it is this whole to which education will always look in the end. Besides learning to read the great works of classical antiquity, students of Classics also gain direct access to the Christian tradition, since it was primarily in Greek and Latin that Christian spirituality initially took literary shape, flourished thereafter in the great theologians and poets, and continues to illuminate our lives today.

            It was a long pending dream to join MBA program, but due to factors like cost, institution brand and time were not in perfectly aligned to join any university. Finally my search came to an end after finding University of Dallas and it was a good bet for my MBA program. To gold plate the MBA program, industry experienced professors teach the subjects. Finally the touch down was priceless with great knowledge and experience.

          • Testimony
            2002-2004, B. A.

            I grew up in Seattle, Washington and I have never regretted traveling to Texas to attend the University of Dallas. In my opinion, it is the best school in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the best Catholic school in the South, the strongest Rome Program of any American university, and it provides its students with an education that rivals any in the country. My studies at UD trained me well for my career as an attorney. And its graduate school entrance rates demonstrate that the University of Dallas prepares its students extremely well for most post-graduate programs. Attending this little gem in the heart of Texas was one of the best decisions of my life.
