Shaping Faith Perspectives 

The Catholic Studies Program at Gonzaga helps you expand your mind, faith and perspective through the study of the Catholic Church and its important role in history and the modern world.

In the program, you will explore the relationship between the Church and different cultures and religions around the globe, gaining a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith and its history, ideals, traditions, teachings and practices. The program offers a minor in Catholic Studies. Courses critically examine the expression of Catholicism in literature, science and art and theological concepts such as sacramentality, incarnation, sin and redemption.

Grounded in the Church doctrine and the University’s Jesuit mission, our program connects Catholicism to the contemporary world around us, preparing you to shape a future of purpose and a commitment to doing good.
