Sponsored by 24 religious communities, Catholic Theological Union is a premier school of theology with an international reputation for academic and pastoral excellence. The school was founded in 1968 in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood to provide the Roman Catholic Church with a school of theology that is urban based, ecumenical in spirit, and set squarely in the context of a great academic center. The original collaboration among men’s religious communities has advanced into a remarkable partnership across the institution among lay and religious women and men. International students from more than 40 countries form nearly one-third of the student body. The alumni of CTU serve the church and their communities around the world.

Hispanic Theology and Ministry Program

Established in 1982, the Hispanic Theology and Ministry Program at CTU provides theological education that is historically, culturally, pastorally and theologically situated in Latin@ contexts. Through academic degrees, concentrations, certificates, and Latin@ themed courses, this program prepares students for theological study, ministry and leadership in a church that is increasingly Latino/a in the United States.
