Doctoral Candidate Pairs Catholic Studies with Sociology  

Doctoral candidate Brittany Kowalski headshotSince graduating from Seton Hall with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Catholic Studies in May 2015, Brittany Kowalski has continued her pursuit of higher education. In May 2017, she graduated with a Master of Arts in Sociology from West Virginia University. Upon completion of her master's degree, she began to pursue a doctoral degree in sociology at West Virginia University. She also works as a graduate assistant for the Department of Sociology and Anthropology.

She credits her pursuit of a double major and, in particular, the Catholic Studies program at Seton Hall University with preparing her for graduate school.

This is what Brittany had to say when we asked her where her Catholic Studies degree has led her:

"The Catholic Studies degree prepared me well in the areas of research, writing, debate and public speaking. Thanks to Seton Hall University and Catholic Studies, I have been, and continue to be, successful in graduate school. I look forward to taking what I learned in the Catholic Studies program and using it in classes of my own. I am eternally grateful for all that the Catholic Studies program taught me and how well it prepared me for graduate school."

Brittany is just one of countless Seton Hall students who are reaping the benefits of a Catholic Studies degree. Often known as the major that enhances every other major, the Catholic Studies curriculum is custom built according to each student's academic and professional goals and offers students the opportunity to major, double major, minor, double minor or earn a certificates in Catholic Studies or Pastoral Music Ministry. Both innovative and interdisciplinary, it is the perfect complement to every other undergraduate program, including nursing and education.
