“No one knows what the jobs of the future will be, but a liberal arts degree provides a great foundation for adjusting to new careers and further education.”

– Edward J. Ray, President of Oregon State University

“The program at Christendom taught me how to read, write, and think, which are crucial skills for a journalist. More importantly, the Christendom experience taught the value of fostering relationships with people which helped me build sources in Washington, D.C., and have intelligent conversations on the complex issues driving American politics today.”

– Charlie Spiering ’05, White House Correspondent

“In my field, sifting through the politics, the misunderstandings, and the agendas can be a daunting task. I look back on my time at Christendom as providing me with invaluable tools for my profession: critical thinking, confidence in the truth, and the basis for a prayer life. The academic, human, and spiritual formation I received during those four years often serves as a compass, giving me the direction needed to discover the truth and the confidence to defend it.”

– Ann Schneible ’04,  Journalist for Catholic News Agency’s Rome Bureau

The Power of the Liberal Arts

Through the study of the Catholic liberal arts, you will encounter a universal study of knowledge—through Mathematics, History, Literature, Science, Classics, and Political Science—unified by the central role played by Philosophy and Theology. John Henry Newman noted that this 2000-year time-tested curriculum actually expands the intellect, empowering you to win in the marketplace when competing with graduates of other colleges or universities.
