The Catholic Studies minor at Boston College seeks to develop an intellectual and academic approach to Catholicism which does justice to the full human reality, integrity and pluralism within this major world religious tradition. Since Catholicism comprises more than a religious institution, a body of doctrines, or a set of moral or ritual practices, the Catholic Studies minor invites you to explore the richness of the Catholic intellectual tradition and its lived experience as a culture from a variety of academic perspectives.
