The Certificate in Catholic Catechesis is an ideal way for the Parish Catechetical Leader, Director of Religious Education, and the advanced catechist to begin formal academic study of the Catholic faith. With the curriculum derived from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, students develop an appreciation of the Catholic faith from both an intellectual and personal perspective. The required texts are limited to the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, with links to both resources at the USCCB website.

Each course carries one undergraduate credit, which may be applied towards a Bachelor of Arts degree.
