The College of St. Scholastica

Our interdisciplinary Catholic Studies program is for students who want to learn more about the Catholic faith while also exploring other religious traditions. With the principles of Catholic Intellectual Tradition at its core, this major welcomes, facilitates and promotes discussion about the relationship between faith and modern culture.

Grounding students in the liberal arts, it prepares them to become leaders who, inspired by the Gospel, will be able to speak honestly and respectfully to people from all walks of life. Graduates have gone on to work in parishes, elementary and high schools and social services. Through a partnership, St. Scholastica students may also apply to a 4+1 program to earn a Master of Arts in Theology at an accelerated pace through Saint John’s School of Theology and Seminary.
