It’s the reason we’re all here. Whether you join ODU as an undergraduate, graduate student, or participant in our many special academic programs, you’ll choose from a wide range of subjects that broaden your interests and prepare you for success and lifelong intellectual growth.
The largest program at ODU offers 43 majors in five degrees: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science in Education, Associate of Arts and Associate of Science. Whichever path you choose, you’ll experience a dynamic education that extends well beyond the classroom.
ODU’s graduate program is divided into five main categories: Master’s Degrees in Education, Business Administration, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), Liberal Studies, and Theology. Based in the same educational values as our undergraduate programs, graduate programs are perfect for career development goals and can often be planned around full-time working situations.
Ohio Dominican welcomes learners who seek academic opportunities outside the traditional student experience. Create a narrowly focused, self-defined major, dig deeply into research, or enrich your knowledge by studying abroad. Our much-admired LEAD program is a unique adult-degree business program that offers a quality education that is respected in the business community. Earn an Associate, Bachelor’s, or Master’s degree by integrating your work and life experiences in the classroom on your own schedule.
One thing every Ohio Dominican undergraduate shares is The Core Experience, a series of classes that weave a unifying theme throughout each student’s academic journey. The Core Experience enhances the major you choose by asking important questions about trust, knowledge, inquiry, and creativity. Time and time again, graduates tell us it’s one of the aspects of ODU that makes their time here so meaningful.
Every member of ODU’s highly experienced faculty is passionate about seeking and contemplating truth and inspiring students to learn and share this growth. It’s the Dominican way. At the heart of this process is the Student Engagement Model, which provides a meaningful and consistent framework for program development. Be prepared to be recognized: Our small classes and intimate atmosphere provide a sense of belonging not commonly found at other universities. Faculty members know our students by name, and every student knows he or she is a top priority.
