Program Handbook

The Notre Dame doctoral program in theology is a premier program for Roman Catholic and ecumenical theological study. We offer a collegial and challenging program, in which students work closely with world-class scholars, innovative younger faculty, and one another to develop into mature scholars and teachers. Areas of focus include Christianity and Judaism in Antiquity, The History of Christianity, Liturgical studies, Moral Theology/Christian Ethics, Systematic Theology, and World Religions and World Church. The doctoral program places a very high percentage of its graduates in tenure-track, academic positions.
