Dallas Texas

THE OPTIMISTIC OUTLOOK of Dallas is at the heart of Southern Methodist University (SMU). Its enterprising spirit has helped shape Dallas into a global gateway for people of all backgrounds who want to change the world. This comprehensive research university joined with an energetic city creates an opportunity powerhouse where more than twelve thousand undergraduate and graduate students forge success in a rigorous academic environment.

SMU prepares Mustangs for the demands of a rapidly changing world, and jobs that don’t yet exist. SMU’s flexible Common Curriculum builds a solid liberal arts foundation and allows students to pursue and develop multiple interests and skills.

Data science, a recently introduced discipline, develops data fluency and innovative thinking regardless of major. Students expand their education by pairing with faculty mentors through research, civic engagement, creative works, and internships.

In the Gerald J. Ford Hall for Research and Innovation—SMU’s interdisciplinary research hub—faculty, students, and industry partners collaborate, solve problems, and power new enterprises. The new Moody School of Graduate and Advanced Studies elevates the university’s research community.
