History

From its foundation The Catholic University of America has given academic priority to theology and religious studies and related disciplines. Initially the academic programs in these areas were offered in the School of Sacred Sciences (1889). In time there emerged the School of Canon Law (1923), followed by the Seminary Program (1931) and, within the School of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Religion (1932). The original School of Sacred Sciences was later divided into The School of Sacred Theology and The School of Philosophy (1937). In 1970 The Liturgical Studies Program was instituted. After an extensive review of programs and structures, the Board of Trustees approved a recommendation by the Academic Senate to establish a new School of Religious Studies in September 1973. The school was composed of five departments: biblical studies, canon law, church history, religion and religious education, and theology. In 2002, the Board of Trustees, in accordance with the recommendation of the Academic Senate, voted that the canon law department be reestablished as the School of Canon Law and that the remaining academic units of the school become programs in the School of Theology and Religious Studies. By thus coordinating existing units, The Catholic University of America established the School of Theology and Religious Studies as a national center of academic research, instruction and service.

The School of Theology and Religious Studies at The Catholic University of America is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.

Mission

The mission of The Catholic University of America is to render service in the United States as an intellectual center of the highest quality where every dimension of truth, natural and revealed, can be examined with competent expertise. The university seeks in particular to maintain a position of excellence in biblical and liturgical studies, church history, religion and culture, religious education, ethics, spirituality, and theology. The university accords priority to theology and to religious studies and to programs that explore the Roman Catholic tradition of humanistic learning and that study its relevance to the needs of society and the Church.

To help realize the mission of the university, the School of Theology and Religious Studies sets itself two goals, namely, to promote excellence in teaching, research, and publication in the area of theology and religious studies, and to provide professional training for lay and clerical leaders who will serve the Roman Catholic community in the United States and throughout the world. In pursuit of these goals, the school places emphasis on an interdisciplinary approach and collaboration with other schools of the university, on the ecumenical and interreligious dimensions of all theological studies, on the exploration of relations between religion and culture, and on the promotion of informed efforts to work for justice and peace, both within the Church and in the world, in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The School of Theology and Religious Studies continues its long tradition of serving undergraduates at The Catholic University of America by offering general education requirement courses, a minor, a certificate in Pastoral Ministry, and its flagship program the B.A. in Theology and Religious Studies (TRS).  Staring in Fall of 2014, the School of Theology and Religious Studies begins matriculating students who pursue the B.A. in TRS.  

History.

From its foundation The Catholic University of America has given academic priority to theology and religious studies and related disciplines. Initially the academic programs in these areas were offered in the School of Sacred Sciences (1889). In time there emerged the School of Canon Law (1923), followed by the Seminary Program (1931) and, within the School of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Religion and Religious Education (1932). For 70 years, the undergraduate curriculum has provided courses in the Catholic theological tradition and practices. In addition, it has also examined Orthodox and Protestant traditions of Christianity together with studies of Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Taoism, and Confucianism in the context of global societal developments.  

The original School of Sacred Sciences was later divided into The School of Sacred Theology and The School of Philosophy (1937). After an extensive review of programs and structures, the Board of Trustees approved a recommendation by the Academic Senate to establish a new School of Religious Studies in September 1973. The school was composed of five departments: biblical studies, canon law, church history, religion and religious education, and theology. In 2002, the Board of Trustees, in accordance with the recommendation of the Academic Senate, voted that the canon law department be reestablished as the School of Canon Law and that the remaining academic units of the school become programs in the School of Theology and Religious Studies. By thus coordinating existing units, The Catholic University of America established the School of Theology and Religious Studies as a national center of academic research, instruction and service.  This school continues to provide courses for undergraduates who need to fulfill distribution requirements as well as for those wishing to major or minor in theology and religious studies.  In 2014, the Academic Senate approved the matriculation of undergraduate students into this School of Theology and Religious Studies.
The School of Theology and Religious Studies at The Catholic University of America is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.

Requirements for all Catholic University Students.
  To fulfill the distribution requirements for the bachelor's degree, undergraduate students in the School of Arts and Science, the School of Philosophy, the School of Business and Economics, and the National Catholic School of Social Service must take four courses in theology and religious studies. Students in the Schools of Architecture, Engineering, Music and Nursing must take three such courses. All students must take the introductory course TRS 201 Faith Seeking Understanding. Students then take two or three additional TRS courses as their School requires.

All students should develop patterns of courses that fit their academic interests and program, in consultation with their advisors. To help guide students in their areas of interest, courses in Theology and Religious Studies are categorized by the first and second digit. The distinction between 200 / 300 / 400 level is not one of difficulty, but rather of breadth. The 200 level courses serve as introductory courses in the areas of specialization within the School of Theology and Religious Studies: Biblical Studies (200 & 210); Church History (220 & 221); Moral Theology and Ethics (230); Liturgy and Sacraments (240); Spirituality (251), History & Systematic Theology (261); and Religion and Culture (280 & 290). Courses at the 300 level treat more specialized questions within these same areas. Special Topics (400 level) courses are taught in a small seminar format with enrollment restricted to a certain population of students on campus.

Course Numbering System.
The course numbering system is designed to give a "decade" at each level (200, 300, 400) to an area of specialization within theology and religious studies. The numbering system is as follows:

00-09    Old Testament (Biblical Studies)
10-19-    New Testament (Biblical Studies)
20-29    Church History
30-39    Moral Theology/Ethics
40-49    Liturgy and Sacraments
50-59    Spirituality/Ministry/Religious Education
60-79    Systematic Theology
80-89    Religious Studies (Religion and Culture)
90-99    World Religions (Religion and Culture)

Professional Curriculum
Courses in theology and religious studies are regularly offered that comment upon the professional fields, such as nursing, the arts, business, economics, ecology, and public life. Undergraduates in the Schools of Architecture and Planning, Engineering, Music, and Nursing should consult their advisers to discuss appropriate sequences for their distribution requirements. Undergraduates who are considering vocations to the priesthood, religious life, or lay ministry in the Catholic Church may find courses relevant to their anticipated goals. Campus ministry offers social service opportunities, which complement the academic program. Some courses in the department also include reflective internships as a part of the course requirements.

Transfer Students
Students may be admitted to the School of Theology & Religious Studies as freshmen or as upperclassmen. Upperclassmen who wish to declare a TRS major or transfer into the school must have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA to be accepted, including a 3.0 GPA in TRS courses.

Credits earned in undergraduate courses in TRS pursued at other institutions will be accepted for undergraduate degrees provided that the requirements of the University-wide policy for earning transfer credit (http://policies.cua.edu/academicundergrad/transferofcredit.cfm) are met, that the courses are equal in quality and content to those offered in the School of Theology and Religious Studies and that the student has earned acceptable grades in those courses. The maximal number of allowable transfer courses toward a major in TRS is normally four.  

Honors Students

Honors students who complete the entire sequence of three concentrations in humanities, philosophy, and the social sciences are expected to complete three further courses in theology and religious studies. There is also a four-course Honors concentration specifically in the field of theology and religious studies.

Minors

Students can complete a minor in theology and religious studies by completing six courses in this field, including TRS 201 Faith Seeking Understanding and five additional courses.

Peace and Justice Studies and Islamic World Studies Minors
A program of study for minors may be fruitfully combined with a minor either in Peace and Justice Studies or in Islamic World Studies. The school offers courses that contribute to both programs. Further information is available from the undergraduate office of the School of Theology and Religious Studies.

Certificate in Pastoral Ministry

The School of Theology and Religious Studies offers a two-year Certificate Program of coursework and supervised ministry that prepares CUA students for future ministry as catechists, religion teachers, youth ministers or campus ministers, in social concerns and other ecclesial ministries. The certificate from The Catholic University of America meets the requirements for lay ministry certification in most dioceses of the United States. Students who undertake this program will take four specified theology and religion courses, TRS 355: The Mission of the Contemporary Catholic; TRS 357: Foundations of Religious Education or TRS 358: Ministry with Vulnerable Population or TRS 359: Teens, Church Today and Tomorrow; TRS 453: The Practice of Pastoral Ministry; and, TRS 495 Internship/Theological Reflection. Students should consult the School for more information on eligibility and how to apply.  

B.A. in Theology & Religious Studies

In the context of a Catholic University liberal arts education, the Bachelor of Arts degree in theology and religious studies provides students with both a wide exposure to the various sub-disciplines of theology and religious studies, and an opportunity to delve more deeply into areas of special interest to them.

Admission In order to be accepted as a major in theology and religious studies, students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. In addition, at the completion of their sophomore year, they must have an average 3.0 GPA in theology and religious studies courses. Students who fail to maintain an acceptable average of 3.0 in their TRS courses may be dismissed from the program.

TRS Courses Students majoring in theology and religious studies are required to complete at least 12 courses (36 credits) in theology and religious studies. Required courses for the major include:  Faith Seeking Understanding (TRS 201); Christian Theology I and II (TRS 465/466); and Introduction to Religious Studies (TRS 485);Of the remaining courses students are required to take one course in each of the following areas: Biblical Studies (00’s-10’s), Moral Theology/Ethics (30’s) and Liturgy & Sacraments (40’s). Majors are also required to take a senior capstone seminar (TRS 497) that will involve a research paper suitable for publication. This allows for four further courses that the student may choose, depending on his or her interests.

General Education Requirements.  TRS undergraduate students complete, in addition to their twelve required TRS courses and eight elective courses (for no more than a total of sixteen TRS courses total), the following requirements:  six courses in Philosophy (according to the School’s minor requirements); ENG 101, two courses in Literature (one of which must be designated as readily connectable to theological study), two courses in History (one of which must be designated as readily connectable to theological study), two courses in Fine Arts (one of which must be designated as readily connectable to theological study; note TRS 454 replaces the other one for Spanish language students), language courses through Intermediate II, and five courses in math / natural science (at least one) science / social science (at least one), one of which must be in math or an approved Business course.
 
Comprehensive Exams. Students who conclude the major course sequence must successfully finish bachelor's comprehensive exams. These must be completed by April 1 for spring graduation and November 1 for January graduation.


Double Majors. The school encourages students to pursue a double major in theology and religious studies along with another discipline. Double majors at the bachelor's level permit preparation for graduate work or professional occupation in interdisciplinary areas.


B.A. / M.A.

The School of Theology and Religious Studies offers a joint Bachelors and Master’s degree program where the B.A. is completed by the end of four years and the M.A. is completed by the end of year five. The program is especially helpful for students who anticipate working in a field (such as youth ministry, high school teaching) where a Master’s degree is beneficial or required, or who intend to go on for graduate work in theology and religious studies. Information on M.A. admissions and requirements is available under the Graduate Announcements for the School of Theology and Religious Studies. B.A. / M.A. students must meet all such admissions and program requirements, though at the time of application during junior year they need not submit letters of recommendation or GRE scores (these latter are required by the end of fall term senior year).Since four 600-level Master’s courses taken during the B.A. “double count” toward the B.A. and M.A., students should diligently plan out the requirements for these two degrees.
