Center for Catholic Studies
The Center for Catholic Studies is an academic community within the University of St. Thomas dedicated to the ongoing renewal of Catholic higher education. In partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences, the Center engages students, faculty and staff, and the broader community in a conversation about the historical and contemporary implications of the impact of the Incarnation of Christ on thought and culture.
Guided by the dialogue between faith and reason and the unity of knowledge, we explore the significance of these implications as they relate to moral leadership and the common good. We do this through entrepreneurial partnerships and interdisciplinary programming with three institutes, an international academic journal, and the Department of Catholic Studies.
We engage the broader Catholic community in this exploration through national and international collaborations, including the pontifical councils of the Holy See and Catholic universities throughout the world, from Rome to Cameroon.
