The Minor in Catholic Studies consists of courses which are devoted to the examination of topics, themes, or questions pertinent to Roman Catholic intellectual tradition, doctrine, and faith in its various aspects. Illustrations of the principles and teachings of Roman Catholicism are found in literature, art, philosophy, the natural and social sciences, historical study, business disciplines, and theology.

Requirements for the Minor (18 credits)

The minor consists of 18 credits, as follows:


TH 203  or TH 220  fulfills a second core requirement in theology, but it is not a prerequisite that must be satisfied before undertaking the other elective courses. Electives must be chosen from approved Catholic studies minor courses in such prescribed subject areas as theology, philosophy, history, English, biblical studies, fine arts, business studies, and the natural or social sciences. However, to ensure the interdisciplinary character of the Catholic studies minor, students may take no more than two of these elective courses from the same subject area. Theology majors pursuing the Catholic studies minor should take all four of their elective courses from academic disciplines other than theology.
