Major & Minors

Every person desires to know God and to know all things in light of God. As St. Augustine writes, “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.”


The study of theology at Notre Dame works toward this end by thoughtfully engaging all that is opened to us in divine revelation and by thinking with the great authors of past three millennia.


“It’s really been a chance to learn and grow in my faith and to also be challenged by it."
— Jenna Ahn, Theology Major


Our community of majors and minors study the books of Scripture and the central works of the Tradition. Together with a diverse and talented faculty, students carry forward the task of “faith seeking understanding” in elective courses and in their research.


In all of this, our students grow to become critical thinkers, excellent writers, and more well-formed men and women. We hope that you’ll join us!


The courses are fascinating. They allow you to dive into a wide range of topics from scripture to world religions to sacramental theology. You learn to think and write about the most important questions.
