Catholic Studies Minor

The Catholic Studies Program at Loyola University New Orleans offers an interdisciplinary minor for any student who desires to learn about the Catholic faith tradition and its myriad cultural and social manifestations. Richly faceted, Catholicism is a living tradition of faith and witness that can be exploited through its history, doctrines and theologies, philosophies, artistic expressions, literature, devotional life, and sacramental practices. Catholicism has many dimensions. It is a religious institution, a social force, a creator and shaper of culture, and a way of approaching God. The Catholic Studies Program is designed to offer the students a coherent and multi-disciplinary approach to the study of the global Catholic community and its living tradition. Indeed this tradition is the basic inspiration for Loyola University New Orleans.
