Collaboration Happens Here

Dominican is known for its interdisciplinary approach to education, and this means collaboration happens all over campus.

No matter what your major, you'll take courses and get to know faculty members from each of our four schools. Professors from across disciplines team up for research projects and sometimes co-teach courses. 

Some programs are interdisciplinary in nature. For example, our master’s of business administration with a healthcare leadership concentration offers a mix of business, leadership, and health science courses. Our arts management minor encompasses creative and professional aspects.
