  • A proposal that includes a statement of intellectual rationale for the proposed field of study, an outline of courses already taken, and a plan of proposed courses. Proposals are written in consultation with the Catholic Studies advisor,  the director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies and two faculty sponsors based in departments related to the proposed major.
  • Letters of support from faculty sponsors.

 

The Minor

A multidisciplinary minor in Catholic Studies requires:
