The minor program in Catholic Studies is an interdisciplinary program which requires completion of a minimum of 15 credit hours, including the required CA 1500 - Introduction to Catholic Thought and Culture. For more information about this program, please contact Fr. Brian Frain, S.J., Program Director, at (816)501-3538, Van Ackeren Hall 313.
In addition to CA 1500, students complete a total of 12 upper-division credit hours (four courses) distributed as follows:
A minimum of one course (three credit hours) from the list of offerings on Catholic thought:
Two additional courses (six credit hours) from either of the above lists or as approved by the director of the program (who may substitute other courses, including occasional special topics courses in Catholic Studies as developed by the program).
Additional courses may be added to the list of approved Catholic Studies electives. For descriptions of the upper-division courses listed above, see the catalog sections of the various departments that sponsor and schedule them.
Students must earn a grade of C or better in each upper-division course to count toward the Catholic Studies minor. (A grade of C- will not satisfy this requirement.)
