Theology is a large and distinguished department at Notre Dame, with scholars known and respected around the world for their groundbreaking work in such areas as liberation theology and the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Furthermore, teaching has always been one of the department’s strengths. Ph.D. students, together with their faculty mentors, engage in comprehensive teaching workshops to prepare them to teach in a variety of institutional settings.

Undergraduate students work with faculty to explore a wide range of subjects, and master-level students prepare to integrate theological understanding into academic, ministerial, and/or other professional contexts.
