Located in the heart of the city on a scenic 77-acre campus, the University of Dubuque offers programs in the undergraduate and graduate college and in the graduate theological seminary. The University’s mission of encouraging intellectual, moral, and spiritual development dates back to the University's founding.

Twenty percent of the student population is comprised of men and women from underrepresented populations. The University of Dubuque’s welcoming interfaith community of 1,500 students comes from across the country and around the globe. A small campus community, the University offers a 15 to 1 student to faculty ratio. Students can earn the bachelor’s degree in 16 areas, as well as a master of business administration (MBA) and master of arts in communication (MAC) degrees. As members of the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and NCAA Division III, university men and women compete in 19 conference sports, as well as participating in a variety of intramural athletics and wellness classes. The University of Dubuque Theological Seminary (UDTS) is one of 10 theological institutions of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and awards master of divinity, master of arts in religion, and doctor of ministry degrees. One of the advantages of theological education at UDTS is the university of which it is a part. The UDTS is the only Presbyterian seminary that is integrally part of a university. The seminary emphasizes the local church as the central focus and model for ministry, while also training students for ministry in nontraditional settings. Deeply grounded as a Presbyterian seminary, UDTS also serves students from a variety of other denominations.
