ABOUT THE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY OF AMERICA
The Catholic University of America, a thriving center of scholarship and academic life, is unique as the national university of the Catholic Church and the only higher education institution founded by the U.S. bishops. Established in 1887 as a graduate and research center, the university began offering undergraduate education in 1904. Private and coeducational, The Catholic University of America has 12 schools, all of which offer graduate degrees and/or professional degrees. All undergraduates combine a base curriculum in the liberal arts with more in-depth courses from their major fields of study.
Accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools as well as many disciplinary accrediting organizations, CUA enjoys a distinguished history and has filled an important niche: doctoral programs in philosophy and social work that are among the nation’s oldest; the only university library science and music schools in Washington, D.C.; the largest architecture school in the area; a law school that is a pioneer in clinical education; and a drama department that has been the educational incubator for acclaimed playwrights, directors and actors.
Students at Catholic University enjoy the best of both worlds: they study and live on the largest campus in Washington, D.C., where they can enjoy a complete collegiate experience, but they are also located in the heart of the nation’s capital. Traveling by Metrorail, which is located near the edge of campus, students are only a five-minute ride away from Union Station, Capitol Hill and the Library of Congress, and within easy reach of the abundant array of educational, cultural, social, political and professional opportunities that Washington has to offer. Many first-time visitors to campus are captivated by the university’s expansive setting among tree-lined rolling hills where the skyline is dominated by the adjacent, majestic Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the largest church in the United States.
