Welcome to Trinity College Dublin The Loyola Institute, which is dedicated to education and research in theology in the expansive Catholic tradition. Our central concern is the creative intersection where theology, church, and society meet. Theology is a fascinating and vital subject. It challenges students to think critically and creatively across various disciplines, always looking to keep the ‘bigger picture’ in view. And it encourages students to think for themselves about pressing questions of ultimate value. It draws our attention to what a prominent social philosopher has called “an awareness of what is missing”.
At the Loyola Institute at Trinity College, Dublin, we offer taught programmes in Christian Theology, an M.Phil. and a postgraduate Certificate. We also offer research degrees at M.Litt. and PhD level. Students can audit individual courses. For more information on our programmes, please follow this. The Institute regularly hosts major international speakers who are world leaders in their fields; many of these events are open to the public.
