At the Notre Dame Graduate School, we are the home of academic excellence driven by the conviction that your research matters.
We are here because of the discoveries you will make. We are here because of the innovations you will create. We are here because you will illuminate truth and beauty. We are here because you will advance human understanding in service of the common good.
We are here because of you.
We are deeply invested in your success. We know that our voice is best heard through the impact your research will have. To that end we work in concert with world-class faculty across a variety of disciplines to develop your expertise. We offer individualized attention in nurturing departments, all within the context of a broad, robustly-resourced research university. We are renowned worldwide for our academic excellence and we welcome you to the conversations taking place in our vibrant intellectual community.
At the heart of our conviction that your research matters is our belief that providing you with a nourishing environment will best enable your scholastic contributions to shine. Thus our holistic approach to Graduate Training emphasizes professional development and well-being, understanding that students who have had these needs met have greater likelihood of academic impact.
Through our outstanding Graduate Training model, we empower you to follow in the university’s Catholic mission to extend learning towards universal enrichment, furnishing you with resources and guidance as you hone your plan for contributing in the public sphere beyond Notre Dame. At the same time, we understand that your life experience is not purely intellectual and occupational, put physical, emotional, spiritual, and social. We dedicate ourselves to fostering you in each of these areas.
