Home to much of the core curriculum that shapes the undergraduate experience, the School of Arts and Sciences is the touchstone our alumni refer to when they talk about becoming the well-rounded leaders and citizens who define the Catholic University impact.

As researchers we will connect the discovery of new knowledge across the humanities and the natural and social sciences in ways that fortify societies and celebrate human dignity. As teachers we will change the course of students’ lives, propelling them towards a meaningful future.
