Career Services Resources for Students
The Office of Career Services offers extensive assistance to students seeking employment, pursuing advanced studies or participating in postgraduate service opportunities. By completing internships and utilizing mentors, students are empowered to build lifelong career management skills.
In addition to dedicated faculty and extensive course offerings, another valuable resource available to Catholic Studies students is the MacPháidín Library. Over the years, acquisitions in Roman Catholicism were chosen across the disciplines rather than concentrating solely on theology. The quality and quantity of books are exemplary for an undergraduate program in Catholic Studies.
