Department Chair, Ines Angeli Murzaku, Ph.D.

Prof. Ines Angeli MurzakuThe Department of Catholic Studies offers a BA Major in Catholic Studies, a Minor in Catholic Studies, and a Certificate in Catholic Studies. Our goal is to educate big minds and big hearts. Catholic Studies faculty are highly trained and have substantial experience in teaching and research. Each of our faculty displays intellectual vitality and excellence in one or more areas of teaching and research. They are dedicated teachers and researchers who hold the highest academic degrees and are open to the fullness of Truth across disciplines . They listen carefully, take to heart the dialogue between faith and reason, and genuinely believe in the human capacity to advance along the path of Truth. This lofty aspiration of finding the authentic Truth and putting it into action is the most precious gift that Catholic Studies faculty can give to our students.

For Catholic Studies faculty, education means to form our students in all fields of human knowledge; to understand, to encourage and to support them in the path of human maturation; and to lead them to know and change themselves and transform the world. Our faculty are active in research and publication and have won governmental and nongovernmental awards including Fulbright, National Endowment for the Humanities, Humboldt Research Grants and other prestigious awards.
