The Catholic Studies program will provide you with an informed understanding and appreciation of the depth and breadth of the Catholic tradition and its unique contribution to society—past and present. In our rigorous, interdisciplinary program, you’ll explore Roman Catholicism as a religious and cultural reality that expresses and motivates multiple forms of human expression.
Catholic Studies majors study and work with faculty members from a number of DePaul’s departments and colleges, including anthropology, economics, English, philosophy, religious studies and the College of Science and Health. And with flexibility in course selection, you’ll explore multiple subject areas and perspectives.
