Catholic Studies

The program in Catholic studies is intellectual in focus and interdisciplinary in nature. Rigorous intellectual study, a deepened critical understanding, and an appreciation of the Catholic contribution to human civilization are its main goals. This program explores Catholicism as a religious and cultural reality that expresses and motivates multiple forms of human expression. The Department houses the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology (CWCIT), an internationally renowned research institute focused on Catholicism around the world (especially in the so-called 'global south').
