The Department of Theology and Religious Studies at Mary Immaculate College - University of Limerick - was founded in 1999. It offers modules for both undergraduate students (as part of the two undergraduate degree courses in Liberal Arts and in Education) and a number of postgraduate programmes (taught and research).

The Department works closely with the Benedictine Abbey of Glenstal, and also has many international links with prestigious Catholic universities throughout Europe (such as Leuven, Innsbruck) and also in the United States of America (such as the University of Notre Dame). Apart from research undertaken on an individual basis by its staff members and research postgraduate students (MA/PhD) the Department of Theology and Religious Studies also co-sponsors the Centre for Culture, Technology, and Values.
