We believe that when scholars are embraced not just intellectually, but physically, emotionally, and spiritually, an emphasis on well being, allows the greatest likelihood of producing research that matters. That is why we provide our graduate students with an environment that is nurturing and rich. Studying at Notre Dame means belonging to a dynamic community, from the faculty and students within your degree program, to fellow graduate students across campus, to greater South Bend at large, which features the recreational and cultural amenities of a large city while maintaining a small-town feel. Additionally, Notre Dame and South Bend enjoy close proximity to Chicago and all of the opportunities that the nation's third-largest city has to offer.
