The Catholic Studies Minor (CATH) invites students of all backgrounds to gain an academic understanding of Catholicism as community, institution and worldview.

Minors in Catholic Studies will progress through an interdepartmental course of study that immerses them in the historical, intellectual and cultural currents that shape and express Catholic faith and life. From an introductory course in Roman Catholicism through approved electives drawn from across the curriculum, Catholic Studies exposes students to the rich variety of the Catholic tradition and provides the opportunity to pursue individual personal and professional interests in relation to this tradition.

The Catholic Studies Minor lies at the heart of Dominican University’s mission to integrate the core curriculum and departmental studies into a larger vision.
