The Catholic Studies curriculum is structured to give students with
differing learning objectives and career goals maximum flexibility in designing
their degree. In addition to courses at DePaul, the department also has two
study-abroad programs in Italy and offers upper-level students the opportunity
to take selected courses at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.
Many different paths are open to Catholic Studies majors: for example, graduate
programs in the professions (education, journalism, law, the social sciences,
or social work); advanced study in theology or religious studies; lay or
ordained vocations in ministry. Whatever their post-graduate plans, students
leave DePaul having participated in the human search for wisdom with a
Vincentian emphasis on building a just society.
