Student Life

There is much more to being a student at Catholic Theological Union than the classes, read­ings, and papers typically associated with graduate work. CTU is a place where students from all walks of life and corners of the globe come together and build a faith community that reflects the diverse face of the Catholic Church today. From the beginning, CTU has also been dedicated to ecumenical and interreligious dialogue and welcomes students from the Jewish, Muslim, and other Christian traditions.
