Catholic Studies

​​​The Department of Catholic Studies offers a rigorous, interdisciplinary exploration of the depth and breadth of the Catholic tradition. This study of Catholicism contributes to an informed understanding and appreciation of the Catholic Church and its unique contribution, past and present, to the human enterprise. The Department houses the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology, an internationally renowned research institute focused on Catholicism around the world—especially in the so-called “global south.”
