Before You Expand Your Horizons,
You Have to Narrow Your Focus.

With more than 70 majors , future Flyers may feel a bit overwhelmed about what academic journey to pursue Which is why we tell them to begin with the school or college that interests them the most. The University of Dayton boasts four accredited divisions for undergraduate studies: College of Arts and Sciences, School of Business Administration, School of Engineering and the School of Education and Health Sciences. Once your child has a good idea of the area in which they wish to study, we'll help them find the right major.

Academic Opportunities

Redesigning an ancient European port? Developing better ways to sterilize medical instruments. Providing music therapy to neglected populations in the Caribbean. At the University of Dayton, students find countless opportunities to do the extraordinary  — enriching the lives of others, developing their leadership potential and making them stand out from the crowd.

Whether they participate in our vast array of internships, cooperative education, education abroad programs or research opportunities, students earn a professional foothold in the world well before earning their diploma.

Service Learning

Why wait to use your knowledge for the greater good? We believe the best learning comes from doing. So we constantly find new ways around our community, our country and our world to integrate learning with helping those in need. You'll find our students helping rebuild the hurricane-stricken Gulf area, delivering aid in Haiti, running a day camp for children in Appalachia and building water filtration systems in Cameroon.

Discover Programs

Students who are not sure what they want to major in are not alone. Many students switch their major more than once during their undergraduate studies. We suggest students take their time and keep their options open.

Each of our four academic divisions offers Discover Programs that let students begin taking core courses while exploring their options and discovering their interests.
