When you enroll in The Catholic University of America, you join one of the original research universities in the United States. In 1900, this University was one of only 14 institutions offering doctoral degrees that came together to form the Association of American Universities.
Here you not only learn what that has been developed and passed down through the centuries, but you also are invited to add to the world’s body of knowledge through research. And unlike many other schools, Catholic University offers a wide array of research opportunities for undergraduates.
Catholic University also has launched a multidisciplinary undergraduate research journal called Inventio. It publishes research that best represents the University’s commitment to the academic and Catholic traditions that inform its mission to “discover and impart the truth.” The journal accepts submissions of research in theology, philosophy, the humanities, and the social sciences.
University Research Day is an annual spring celebration of current faculty and student research in every discipline. It is a campus-wide festival recognizing the dazzling array of new discoveries through research. It also is a fitting way for the University to reaffirm our core belief that every science and art, every reality we can know ultimately leads to knowledge of the Creator.
