Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) - Minor Concentration Catholic Studies (18 credits)

The Minor Concentration in Catholic Studies seeks to enrich the intellectual experience and academic options available to students, to broaden the course offerings across the disciplines, and to complement the visibility given to other programs such as Jewish Studies, Islamic Studies, and North American Studies. Core and complementary courses provide students an opportunity to deepen their understanding of Catholicism in an increasingly pluralistic world. The program offers a systematic and critical exploration of the diverse ways in which the Catholic tradition informs culture, institutions, and identity.
