We report the results of spectral and photometric observations of DQ Her. Available spectra from International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE), Hubble Space Telescope Faint Object Spectrograph (HST - FOS) and CCD photometry of one night were used. Some profiles revealing the variations of some spectral lines at different times are presented. There is variation with time for photometric observations and the brightness of DQ Her is changed from 14 mag. to 17.7 mag with clear display of burst. The ultraviolet luminosity for emitting region is in the range of $(1.9x10^{31}~erg~s^{-1})$. The mass accretion rate is in the range of $(3.5x10^{-12} M_odot yr^{-1})$. The line flux modulations at different times can be explained in terms of the accretion curtain model for intermediate polars, Kim & Beuermann (1996).
