Welcome to the Undergraduate Program in Catholic Studies

Our courses, which seek to integrate such disciplines as literature, philosophy, history, theology, and art, are taught by faculty deeply committed to the encounter of faith and reason.

With more than 280 students we sustain a vibrant community of learning, faith, and friendship, combining a variety of scholarly, spiritual, and social activities. Most of our majors pursue a second major, from education to social work, from business to the sciences -- the kind of opportunities available at a comprehensive university. Furthermore, every year a number of our students spend Spring semester in Rome, where they live in UST’s Bernardi residence near the center of the city and study at the Pontifical University of St Thomas and the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross.  Accompanied by a member of our faculty, they experience the city and the Church uniquely while deepening friendships that last a lifetime.

We are grateful for your interest in Catholic Studies and welcome your inquiries. We look forward to getting to know you better and to welcoming you into the Catholic Studies community.
