Washington, D.C.,'s festivals, museums, professional sports, theatres, concerts, shopping, parks, restaurants, monuments, waterways, and trendy neighborhoods are all an extension of our campus. Hop on the Metro — at the Brookland/Catholic University stop — and you'll be at a museum or baseball game or a flea market in minutes. Before you know it, the nation's capital will feel like home.
At Catholic University, we do all we can to help our graduates chase their dreams. Our location in Washington, D.C., means students have access to internships in every field imaginable.
Having our own Metro station right next to campus connects Catholic University students to all the D.C. region has to offer: great food, free museums, pro sports venues, and some of the best internships in the world.
Washington, D.C., is filled with political activity and opportunities, but it is also full of passionate, driven students integrated into political life whether or not they’re politics majors.
In this class, Catholic University students meet at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., for their art course. They spend each class with just three or four pieces from the Gallery’s collection of Renaissance paintings and sculptures to allow time for thoughtful analysis.
For two and a half hours a week, students explore archives, museums, historical houses, and cultural institutions to learn about the meanings of memory, heritage, place, preservation, community, and controversies in the field of public history.
In this unique course, students learn about their “college town” as a symbolic city (the design and meaning of its buildings, monuments, and museums), a political city (the behavior of national and local policymakers), and a living city (the city’s economy, neighborhoods, culture, and population).
Catholic University students have the best of both worlds: the culture and resources of a big city, and a beautiful, safe campus to call home.Explore our Campus
