About Us

The Loyola Institute at Trinity College is dedicated to education and research in theology in the broad Catholic tradition. Our central concern is the creative intersection of theology, Church and society.

Theology is a fascinating and vital subject that challenges students to think critically and holistically across a wide range of disciplines. It encourages students to think for themselves about the big questions of today and it enables them to be at the cutting edge of contemporary engagement with these issues.

At the Loyola Institute at Trinity we offer a taught M.Phil in Christian Theology, as well as the opportunity to pursue research degrees at M.Litt. and Ph.D. level. We also offer the opportunity for students to audit courses. The Loyola Institute regularly hosts major international speakers who are world leaders in their fields; many of these events are open to the public.

We welcome students with a diversity of backgrounds and interests from Ireland and across the world.

At the Loyola Institute you will find a lively and welcoming community. Our small class sizes offer ample opportunity for questions, vibrant discussion and acquiring the skills of dialogue and debate, skills that 21st century employers are seeking.

The Loyola Institute is a part of the School of Religion in Trinity College.

The Loyola Institute is grateful for the generous support of the Loyola Trust (Augustinians, Carmelites (O.Carm.), Columbans, Jesuits, Loreto Sisters, Marists, Oblates, Society of African Missions).
