Catholicism is a complex reality; its tradition includes rituals,
doctrines, artistic and architectural achievements, and much more. Hence, a
thorough understanding requires the use of all DePaul University resources and
years of study.
The department has its own tenured and tenure-track faculty and also draws on
affiliated faculty from throughout the university to teach Catholic Studies
courses: artists, economists, historians, literary critics, musicians,
political scientists, and sociologists as well as philosophers and theologians.
The department offers a major and minor, and offers a broad array of courses
within the liberal studies curriculum so that all DePaul students can discover
the rich heritage of Catholic intellectual thought.
