  1. PURSUE YOUR PASSION
    You’ll be challenged intellectually, choosing among 100 majors and 75 minors in the humanities, sciences, engineering, business, communication, performing and visual arts, and education. Here, traditional disciplines are complemented by innovative programs, such as arts entrepreneurship and human rights. Have multiple interests? You can double or triple major; nearly 60% of SMU students do.
  2. A VIBRANT CAMPUS
    SMU is a great place to live and learn. Tree-lined paths, outdoor art, soothing fountains and colorful gardens invite you to enjoy SMU’s serene setting and the great Dallas weather. SMU is serious about sustainability and is committed to building only eco-friendly, LEED-certified green buildings.
  3. PROFESSORS WHO TEACH
    SMU’s student-faculty ratio is 11:1, and 3 out of 4 classes have fewer than 30 students, so professors know you by name. Devoted to teaching, they value the classroom experience as much as pursuing groundbreaking research. And the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching recognizes SMU as a university with “high research activity.”
  4. MORE THAN A COLLEGE TOWN
    Our residential campus in the heart of Dallas is minutes from this metropolitan city’s lively cultural hub and the nation’s largest urban arts district. Tasty restaurants, hip retail, pro sports and a sunny climate, plus convenient access from both coasts make Dallas an ideal location for your home base for the next four years.
  5. DESTINATION FOR SUCCESS
    A steady economy and #3 national ranking for Fortune 500 corporate headquarters make Dallas a great place for internships and potential jobs in many industries. Prepare for your future with mentor programs while you hone your job research, interviewing and networking skills.
  1. ENGAGED LEARNING
    SMU’s curriculum challenges students to engage beyond the classroom both locally and globally. Students experience academic concepts in a real-world context by pursuing undergraduate research, creative expression, community service and professional internships.
  2. SMU ABROAD
    148 programs in 50 countries offer courses, cultural immersion, research and internships abroad. Courses at SMU-in-Taos draw on the history, art and culture of the Southwestern U.S.
  3. THE FACE OF SMU
    SMU students come from all 50 states and more than 100 countries, with more than half from outside Texas. They represent diverse economic, ethnic and religious backgrounds. They all share a desire to succeed in learning and life and to make the world a better place for all of us.
  4. VALUE FOR A LIFETIME
    An SMU education is worth the investment. First, SMU rewards your academic achievement; then we partner with you and your family to find the best financial options to fit your needs. About 3 out of 4 first-year students receive some form of merit- or need-based financial assistance, including scholarships, grants, loans and part-time jobs.
  5. MUSTANG TRADITIONS
    Pride in SMU builds as you watch the Boulevard come to life, join the holiday Celebration of Lights and enjoy sunny spring days on the quad with friends you’ll have for a lifetime. SMU will remain close no matter where your future takes you.
