The success of our international programs reflect the fact that more than a century ago, Notre Dame was founded through international outreach by the German School Sisters of Notre Dame.
Today, our world has become a much smaller place, but Notre Dame’s commitment to developing international knowledge, intercultural competence and values that promote positive global relationships continues to unfold.
With the opening of the Feeley International Center on campus in September 2001, a number of initiatives have gained focus and momentum, including:
Our department of classical and modern foreign languages also plays a leading role in international education at Notre Dame, with majors and minors in classical Studies, Spanish, French, and modern foreign languages, which is a dual language major.
And, to give our students a richer, first-hand experience of other cultures, the University's Office of International Programs actively sponsors about 35 semester-long and 20 short-term study abroad programs in more than 40 countries.
