Course Offerings

Courses offered at Catholic Theological Union are designed to provide a comprehensive, integrative theological education for ministry in an increasingly global world and a solid foundation for effectiveness as a minister in the Catholic Church. While these courses represent those taught at CTU, courses offered at a given point in time may vary. See the course offerings lists by term for what is being offered during that specific term.

How to read course codes:

The system of letters and numbers that identify courses indicate their characteristics. The letter(s) that precede the numbers usually indicate the field(s) of study. A course with multiple letters satisfies the requirements of each designated field. For example, BW satisfies the requirements for Biblical Studies or Word and Worship. An exception occurs in the letters for the Foundational Core components of the curriculum.
