Braegelman Catholic Studies Minor

The Braegelman Catholic Studies Program at the College of St. Scholastica is guided by the conviction that Catholicism is one of the world’s great monuments of human flourishing, the rigorous and sensitive study of which benefits the Church, academy, and society. The Catholic Studies Minor allows students the opportunity to study the breadth and depth of the Catholic intellectual tradition, within an interdisciplinary setting, thereby exploring the dynamic interactions of faith and reason, religion and culture, Church and state.

The minor is designed to fit nicely with any number of other fields of study and will work well as a double, or second, minor for many students.

The program was endowed by the Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery and named for Sister Athanasius Braegelman, president of the College from 1942-54, and Sister Bernice Braegelman, who taught Scripture and other classes at the College from 1941-72.
