Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Technology at the forefront

We integrate the latest technology into every degree and program at DSU. Whether you're earning an associates or certificate, a bachelor's or an advanced degree, you'll learn vital skills for the digital age. Industry-standard software expertise in every field is just the beginning. Our grads are rising too. They have the critical thinking, collaboration, and project management knowledge that employers demand today.

“It’s really nice knowing your professors and more importantly the professors knowing you by name. It creates a connection. That relationship turned into a reference that helped me land my job.”
