An urban education with a global perspective
DePaul University provides students with a nationally respected, hands-on education through personal attention, broad-based liberal studies, and an integrated service learning approach. More than 130 undergraduate programs combine practical experience with current theory, preparing students for immediate and long-term success.
Located in the heart of Chicago, DePaul offers students unparalleled access to internships and learning opportunities with many of America’s top corporations and cultural institutions. Students build on those experiences through honors courses, service trips, and study abroad programs in over 30 countries.
DePaul, the nation’s 13th-largest private university, is primarily a teaching institution. The University provides a highly interactive learning environment through expert instruction, small class sizes, and real-world projects. Ninety-seven percent of classes are taught by faculty members. The University is regularly recognized in publications such as The Princeton Review and U.S. News & World Report for the diversity and happiness of its student body.
Outside the classroom, you have your choice of participating in any of DePaul’s 350 student organizations, ranging from sports and special interests to politics and pre-professional groups. You can join the Blue Crew and cheer on the Blue Demons as they compete in 15 sports in the highly competitive Big East Conference. And, of course, there’s Chicago, with renowned museums; world-class theatre, music, and sports; a wide range of great restaurants; and outdoor events in its many parks and on the lakefront. During the spring and summer, the city comes alive with fairs, concerts, tours, ethnic festivals, and outdoor fun.
As a DePaul student, you’ll be connected to more than 180,000 alumni—116,000 in the Chicago metropolitan area alone—who form a vibrant network as they pursue careers, service, and lifelong learning. DePaul graduates can be found in all 50 states and approximately 80 countries.
