In 2017, Notre Dame research funding reached a record-breaking level with  $138.1 million in research funding for fiscal year.

Experiential Learning:
A Silicon Valley Semester for Notre Dame Juniors

California is a worldwide hub of education, culture, and innovation. From the high-tech environment of Silicon Valley to the aerospace and entertainment industries in Los Angeles to the advances in biotechnology from San Diego, it is a State that shapes the future of our world.

Together, there’s no telling how much we can do.

The Notre Dame-California program seeks to elevate the State as a source and destination for Notre Dame student talent. It connects the University’s top-flight faculty and student scholars as well as our premier programs to the dynamic ecosystem found on the West Coast.

Whether the glow of our Golden Dome draws you east or our new facility in the Golden State brings you west, the greeting will be the same:

Welcome to Notre Dame.
