CUA Office of Graduate Studies

CUA Office of Graduate Studies Welcome to the page for the Office of Graduate Studies at The Catholic University of America!

The Catholic University of America, founded in 1887 by the U.S. Catholic bishops with the support of Pope Leo XIII, is the national university of the Catholic Church in the United States. Established as a graduate research center, the University began offering undergraduate education in 1904 and today is home to 13 schools and 21 research facilities. Catholic University is the only American university with ecclesiastical faculties granting canonical degrees in three disciplines. The University's verdant 180-acre campus, located just north of Capitol Hill, allows students easy access to the wide range of educational, cultural and political opportunities that Washington, D.C. has to offer.

Mission: The Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies works collaboratively with faculty and administrators from CUA's 13 schools to enhance the academic quality of graduate programs, and provides leadership and support to the university's graduate mission.
