These include Catholic universities and colleges and Catholic universities and colleges with seminaries.
Catholic colleges and universities aren't restricted to Catholic applicants. These schools are grounded in the principle of serving others, and they also welcome international students. Academic programs include undergraduate bachelor's degrees, associate's degrees and certificates that meet the needs of a diverse student body from countries around the world. Available fields of study cover religious and theological studies, and also the same range of programs you would expect at any world-class university (arts, architecture, agriculture, business, computer science, education, health, law, public administration, technology, etc.). Many Catholic colleges and universities in the US have achieved national and international attention for their teaching-based programs designed to encourage student commitment to service and social justice no matter what the major.
