Silicon Valley Semester

Notre Dame California’s Silicon Valley Semester  (SVS) program allows a select group of Notre Dame juniors to spend their spring semester living, studying, and working in Palo Alto.

More information on SVS Spring 2018

Students will complete a curriculum with two distinct yet complementary components:

  • a credit-bearing internship, which they will choose from a diverse set of options identified by Notre Dame California in collaboration with Notre Dame alumni and others in the Bay Area
  • Notre Dame coursework, which will be offered at the Notre Dame California building

The program also provides opportunities to meet industry leaders, visit local attractions, attend sporting events, serve the community, and experience the Bay Area’s vibrant fine arts community.

Notre Dame California has teamed up with Menlo College, a four-year college in nearby Atherton, to provide accomodations for our students during the Silicon Valley Semester.  Housing and tuition charges will be the same as for a semester on Notre Dame’s campus. Please note, however, that these charges will not cover meals and transportation.
