Welcome to the Graduate Program of the Department of Catholic Studies.

In our program we undertake a sustained study of the impact of the Incarnation on human thought and culture. We do this through interdisciplinary study that is attentive to the demands of specific disciplines and yet works to show the fundamental integration of these disciplines in the light of the Incarnate Word.

In Catholic Studies, students and faculty explore together the vibrant and complex realities of Catholic life, thought, and culture.

If you would like to explore this with us, whether you are Catholic or not, I invite you to join us.

Please contact me to learn more about our program, our faculty, and our students. I am happy to answer any questions you might have.
