Golden Dome. Golden State.
Golden Opportunities.

Notice: The academic operations of Notre Dame-California, including the Silicon Valley Semester program, will end summer 2023. Nonetheless, the work of the Meruelo Family Center for Career Development, job placement efforts of the Regional Engagement Manager, short-term academic treks, summer internship programs, and alumni/stakeholder engagements will continue as planned through existing University offices. We are grateful for the steadfast support of our many friends and partners in the Bay Area through the duration of ND-California's operation.

Notre Dame is one of the premier universities in the United States. Long known for the excellence of its undergraduate programs and an abiding commitment to its identity as a Catholic university, its capacity as a research institution has hit new heights in the early years of the 21st century.  For several years running, Notre Dame research funding has reached record-breaking levels.

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

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.
