As a co-educational urban university with a tradition of teaching excellence, Point Park University has nearly 4,000 students who may choose from among more than 82 undergraduate majors, 17 master's degree programs and one doctoral program through the University's School of Arts and Sciences, School of Business, Conservatory of Performing Arts and School of Communication.
