Impact Culture through Media

You'll study your craft under seasoned professionals, who know what it takes to reach a wide audience, and are also committed Christians.

Impact Culture through Humanities
Christ at the Center
In order to impact culture for Christ, you must first know Christ. JPCatholic combines an outstanding professional education with a solid Humanities core curriculum. Undergraduate students take a rich lineup of courses in Scripture, Catholic theology, philosophy, literature, art, and music.
Theology and Philosophy
In our Theology and Philosophy, you will study the deepest, most important questions about where we come from and where we are going. Theology, as faith seeking understanding, is the study of the revealed Word of God in history, which comes to human beings first in Israel and then in the person of Jesus Christ.
Catholic Intellectual Tradition
In our Humanities, you study ideas, art, and culture using the great texts and great works of Western civilization as a foundation, but will enter into them actively, integrating the human powers of memory, imagination, and reason and educating the emotions and passions.
