Natural critical thinkers

Critical thinking is not what you think, it's how you think.

At Notre Dame, you learn to look at things differently and become a better problem solver, no matter what degree you study.

Critical thinking is embedded in every degree and enables you to overcome bias and get to the truth. You learn to separate real news from fake news, truth from lies and information from knowledge – and how to apply it with high levels of professional experience – essential skills for a new generation of CEOs, entrepreneurs, journalists, lawyers, health professionals, teachers, leaders and global citizens, like you.

It's why our graduates are highly valued by employers – our Graduate full-time Employment (78.3%) and Employer Satisfaction (87.4%) rates are the highest in the State. See
