Pursuing Catholic Studies at Regis
The Catholic Studies Program seeks to develop interdisciplinary understanding of the Catholic Christian tradition in relation to human culture. The courses examine both historical and contemporary relationships between Catholic tradition and intellectual thought, society, politics, morality, spirituality, economics, science, media, literature, the arts, and other dimensions of culture.
Catholic Studies at Regis College will identify, develop and support learning opportunities for increased understanding and appreciation of the religious, intellectual, and cultural dimensions of the Roman Catholic tradition among Regis students and in the wider university community. Catholic Studies will draw on the contributions of the various academic disciplines and on interdisciplinary and college-wide resources. Its development will be guided above all by the focus on human culture, dignity and justice articulated by the Second Vatican Council in its discussion of the Church in the modern world. Catholic Studies will seek to provide students with the intellectual foundations and practical experiences necessary to prepare them for lives of service in Church and society.
