Academics

Notre Dame is a leading American research university that offers undergraduate, professional, and graduate students a unique academic environment. Enriched by Catholic intellectual and cultural traditions, it is a place that throughout its history has promoted excellent teaching.

At Notre Dame, you can join a community of students, teachers, scholars, and researchers committed to advancing its rich Catholic mission of “Learning to think rigorously, so as to act rightly and to serve humanity better.” (Pope John Paul II) At Notre Dame, you will find a diverse community of students, teachers, scholars, and researchers who, whatever their beliefs, are committed to that mission.
