Where Theological Thinking Merges with Culture

The School of Theology and Religious Studies at The Catholic University of America is located near other major institutions of theological study and conversation, including the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the formation houses of various religious orders. Our D.C. location fosters opportunities for theological scholarship and conversation that cannot be found elsewhere outside of Rome.

Students receive an up-close and hands-on education in how religion intersects with politics, art, science, and culture and how questions of faith shape political life and public policy. Internship opportunities with think-tanks, government agencies, museums, and nonprofit organizations help students explore these intersections.

The mix of people from diverse cultures and religions in Washington, D.C., opens many avenues of discussion for students and faculty. The city is home to foreign diplomats and leaders of world religions. This unique human tapestry provides for lively discourse, exchange, and engagement.
