About the Department of Catholic Studies
Established in 2012 — the Year of Faith and the 50th anniversary of
the opening of Vatican II — the Department of Catholic Studies at Seton
Hall University, America’s oldest diocesan university, fosters Seton
Hall’s Catholic identity and mission by exploring the relationship of
Catholicism with all areas of culture and learning. Since its focus is
the Church's encounter and dialogue with society or the Church in the
world, Vatican II designated a special place for Catholic Studies as a
discipline in academic life. As a result, Catholic Studies is a dialogue
between Catholicism and culture that occurs in a special way at
Catholic universities. While respecting other disciplines, Catholic
Studies explores theology and philosophy in relation to culture,
humankind and the world. This methodological approach opens up a place
for all other disciplines; these enrich Catholic Studies and are
enriched in return. Catholic Studies builds upon and develops the themes
and questions addressed in the University Core Curriculum and is
complementary to other disciplines. A bachelor’s degree in Catholic
Studies is an interdisciplinary, liberal arts degree — a major that
enhances every other major.
