​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.
