Dallas Texas

THE OPTIMISTIC OUTLOOK of Dallas is at the heart of Southern Methodist University (SMU). For more than a century, SMU’s enterprising spirit has helped shape Dallas into a global gateway for people of all backgrounds. This comprehensive research university joined with an energetic city creates an opportunity powerhouse where more than 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students forge success in a rigorous academic environment.

SMU prepares Mustangs for a rapidly changing world, and jobs that don’t yet exist. A flexible common curriculum is built on a solid liberal arts foundation that allows students to pursue single or multiple majors and experience different cultures. Undergraduates participate in research as early as their first term. Faculty mentors prepare students to succeed through research, civic engagement, creative works, and internships. SMU graduates greet the workforce with multiple competencies and global savvy.

SMU’s data-driven ecosystem with a community focus leverages strengths and investments in evolving technologies and fields—from artificial intelligence and machine learning to computational genomics and metaverse immersive technologies—for transformative societal impact.

The Gerald J. Ford Hall for Research and Innovation, an interdisciplinary research hub, equips faculty, students, and industry partners to collaborate, solve complex problems, and power new enterprises.

The Center for Research Computing provides students across all disciplines access to computer simulation, data analysis, and artificial intelligence through SMU’s supercomputing ecosystem.
