Catholic Studies Major & Minor

What is Catholic Studies?

Simply stated, Catholic Studies examines the ongoing impact of the Incarnation in human history. That means Catholic Studies examines everything because the Incarnation of Jesus Christ impacts everything. Art, Literature, Music, Architecture, Biology, Health Care, Business, Friendship, Vocation, Worship… everything. Current cultural trends and events are examined alongside the Church’s teaching so students can make deeper connections between the classroom and life, culture and Catholicism, truth and charity, reason and faith, and more.

Catholic Studies studies the difference the Incarnation makes to truth and culture."

Can I do this with my other major?

We actually expect you to have another major. Catholic Studies elevates and transforms all other studies, giving you a truly expansive and integrated education. Any student from any discipline who wants to add Catholic studies as a major or a minor can do so. We will move mountains to make this possible. All you need to do is ask, and we’ll help you create a viable plan.

What can you do with a Catholic Studies Major? You do your other major, better! (Dr. John Boyle, during his visit to Carroll College, Feb, 2020.)
