Teaching and learning are our priorities at DePaul. That might seem obvious, but we're the largest private university whose faculty members' priority is teaching. We're also the nation's largest Catholic university — and we're committed to an educational experience that weaves together mind, place, people and heart.
DePaul has more than 300 undergraduate majors and graduate programs, so chances are good we have what you’re looking for. Many of our professors work in Chicago as consultants, researchers and entrepreneurs, and incorporate their experiences in the classroom.
DePaul has one campus in Chicago’s business district and another in Lincoln Park. Chicago itself is an ideal classroom — and we take full advantage of it.
You’ll actually get to know your professors — more than 98 percent of all classes are taught by faculty members, not teaching assistants.
Everyone isn’t the same here. And that’s good. By nurturing diversity and intentionally incorporating multiple viewpoints into academic and student life, you’ll have a learning experience that better reflects — and prepares you for — the world.
