For Students

Dominican is grounded in the conviction that an education should not only develop students' professional capacities, but also prepare them to be deeply thoughtful and actively engaged citizens.

We offer more than 60 academic programs and degrees to undergraduate, graduate and adult students.


Dominican’s Office of Student Life and Campus Ministry coordinate many of the services that support the University’s educational mission and enrich students’ personal, social, physical, spiritual and professional development.

Dominican’s commitment to service learning integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection in order to connect students to their community and enrich the learning experience.

The University’s Global Education Office provides students with opportunities to live and learn in foreign countries while earning academic credit, through the University's Study Abroad Program.

Dominican’s athletics teams participate in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Pacific West Conference (PacWest). In 2009-2010, the school transitioned to an exploratory NCAA Division II program. The men compete in soccer, basketball, golf and lacrosse. The women compete in volleyball, soccer, basketball, softball, golf and tennis.

Want to let off steam and meet new friends? Our intramural program offers fun activities for all students, including Aikido, badminton and dodge ball. The Conlan Center features a gymnasium with two full-sized basketball courts, a seven lane swimming pool, a fitness center and nearby tennis courts.

Career and Internship Services works to secure students internships and jobs with some of the Bay Area’s leading organizations, including Autodesk, the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, CBS Radio, Deloitte & Touche, Fair Isaac, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Harper Collins Publishing, Harvard Medical School, KPMG, Levi Strauss & Co., Lucasfilm, Oakland Raiders, Pixar, San Francisco Giants, UCSF Medical Center and the World Affairs Council.
