Institute of Catholic Studies

The mission of the Institute of Catholic Studies is to provide students, faculty, staff, and the larger community with the opportunity to deepen knowledge of how Catholicism and Catholics have interacted with the world, both shaping and being shaped by culture and society both in the past in the present. As a Jesuit Catholic university, John Carroll University is an ideal home for such analysis.

Through an interdisciplinary Catholic Studies Program, the Institute provides opportunities for encounters with, and formation in, the Catholic intellectual tradition - as expressed in many scholarly disciplines from philosophy to science. It offers courses and public events that highlight the contributions of Catholic intellectuals and scholars and that explore the current conditions in which Catholics find themselves at the dawn of the 21st century.
