The Catholic Studies Program at Georgetown is an interdisciplinary area of study that engages the richness of the Catholic intellectual and cultural tradition with the various dimensions of human existence such as the arts, sciences, humanities, law, medicine, politics, business and economics.
The Interdisciplinary Program in Catholic Studies
In addition to taking courses on an elective basis, students may choose to minor in Catholic Studies. The requirements for the minor - and the interdisciplinary courses sponsored by the Catholic Studies Program which serve to fulfill those requirements - are described below.
Please contact Interim Program Director Diane Apostolos-Cappadona at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding the structure of the Catholic Studies Minor.
Minor in Catholic Studies
What are the requirements for a minor in Catholic Studies?
- 1 Introductory Course (which can be taken in either Fall or Spring)
- 1 CATH seminar
- 2 CATH electives
- 1 Capstone Tutorial, CATH 301
The Capstone Tutorial gives the student the opportunity to develop a project which examines in depth some question or topic through the interdisciplinary Catholic Studies lens. Many students choose to investigate links between their major or their proposed careers and Catholicism. Throughout the semester, Capstone students will meet in seminar format to engage in roundtable discussions of their work.
Important Note: THEO 001 (The Problem of God) is a prerequisite for all Catholic Studies courses.
