About

SMU is celebrating the centennial of its founding in 1911 and its opening in 1915. As SMU enters a second century of achievement, it is recognized as a university of increasing national prominence.

SMU prepares students for leadership in their professions and in their communities. The University’s location near the heart of Dallas – a thriving center of commerce and culture – offers students enriching experiences on campus and beyond. Relationships in the Dallas area provide a platform for launching careers throughout the world.

The University offers a strong foundation in the humanities and sciences and undergraduate, graduate and professional degree programs through seven schools. The learning environment includes opportunities for research, community service, internships, mentoring and study abroad.

SMU was founded by what is now The United Methodist Church, in partnership with civic leaders, and was shaped by the entrepreneurial spirit of the region. The University is nonsectarian in its teaching and committed to academic freedom and open inquiry.
