Theology + Religious Studies

Catholic Studies

The Catholic Church is among the oldest and most prominent institutions in the world. In accordance with the mission of Emmanuel College and the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, this interdisciplinary minor seeks to develop student understanding of the rich academic traditions, cultural heritage and commitment to social justice that are the hallmarks of the Catholic Church. Through the study of theology, art, literature, ethics and other disciplines, students will learn the ways in which the Church's trajectory has been shaped by the thinking and actions of ordinary and extraordinary Catholics.
