Minor in Catholic Studies

Catholic studies is an interdisciplinary program that introduces students to issues and themes in the study of the Catholic Church and Catholic beliefs. The minor attempts to bring together the varied resources on the Rockhurst University campus that illuminate the rich contributions of Catholicism to human history, culture and thought.

The Catholic studies minor includes courses from a number of Rockhurst University departments, with a a required overview course entitled CA500 Introduction to Catholic Thought and Culture. In addition to CA1500, students complete a total of 12 upper-division credit hours (normally four courses) chosen from an approved list that includes courses on both Catholic thought and Catholic culture. 

All Rockhurst University students, regardless of major, are invited to participate in the Catholic studies minor.   No specific background or previous education is necessary and people of all faiths or persuasions are invited to participate.
