Our mission is to help you find yours.

Catholic Theological Union is one of the largest U.S. Catholic graduate schools of theology and ministry. We offer graduate degrees (Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Theology, Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies, and Doctor of Ministry), graduate certificates, and continuing education for women and men, lay and religious, from around the world. CTU’s faculty of experts in theology and ministry educate leaders for the Catholic church and the world.

Although Catholic Theological Union's academic programs are the heart of our mission, there is much more to being a student at CTU than just taking classes. When you are a part of CTU, you are part of something special.

You join a body of men and women from diverse cultures and experiences who are serious about making their faith an integral part of their everyday life. And CTU provides a variety of opportunities for extracurricular activities that play an important role in our students' ministerial and personal formation.

Welcome... We can't wait for you to join our CTU family!
