Postgraduate Study

Since its establishment in 2012, the Loyola Institute has attracted expressions of interest in postgraduate study from a great variety of people, in Ireland and internationally. This popularity is due both to Trinity’s historic reputation in the academic study of theology and to the strong research profiles of the current Loyola staff, each of whom has international standing in their specialisations.

Dr Mary Stefanazzi who was awarded a Ph.D. in 2017

“There are endless opportunities worldwide for postgraduate study these days. What makes the Loyola Institute at Trinity College Dublin stand out for me is the genuine interest and capacity the directors and professors have in challenging and supporting each student to flourish. The Loyola Institute provides a mature, ethical and deeply reflective learning environment in which to research the big and challenging questions pertinent to contemporary culture.” Dr. Mary Stefanazzi with Dr. Bob Geldof, who received an honory degree at the same ceremony.
