The University of Notre Dame offers students an outstanding academic educational experience within a vibrant faith community.
Department of Theology - All Notre Dame students are supported in their learning and spiritual formation through courses they take in the Department of Theology. The department is also home to the Masters in Sacred Music Program which has events that parents and students can attend.
