About

The Catholic Studies Program is an academic unit in Georgetown College. Catholic Studies engage the Catholic intellectual and cultural tradition in multidisciplinary ways. They take Catholicism as both an object of study and a lens through which to view the world. As the object of study, Catholicism encompasses ideas, cultures, people, and organizations. As a lens, Catholicism offers tools of analysis and critique.
