Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Catholic University's social work program offers a fairly high quality education but the administrative support around social justice is limited. The university's adherence to Catholic doctrine regarding LGBT issues and birth control (particularly their rejection of gay rights and their spearheading position in the March for Life each year) are in conflict with the basic tenets of social work and effect what is taught and how the program is managed.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

Catholic University have an interdisciplinary curriculum and diversity of people from different backgrounds. In addition, the University is one of the most eco-friendly universities in the US and the programs at the university offered emphasize the liberal arts, professional, career education, and personal development which will help to impact our society and people around we. Attending The University will also give an opportunity to meet different people from all works of life, gain deep-rooted knowledge of other peoples cultures, their way of life, and help individuals to appreciate their own. I am convinced that this institution will help individuals gain the capability to carry out research and understand the extent to which various factors are affecting people at the grassroots level and works of life.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm currently pursuing a master degree online in social work, and I find my teachers, counselors, and technical support very helpful. They always answer my questions in a timely manner and are always checking that I'm happy with the program. The program is very convenient for students who have to work, or have other responsibilities. Highly recommended

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 1999

CUA was a blessing to me. Although the music school is small, the quality of instruction is excellent. The curriculum is rigorous and doable. Unfortunately, it's too expensive to afford if you don't have a scholarship or if you're well off. The campus is small but beautiful.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

If you are looking for a college experience that welcomes diversity, embraces Christianity and open minded thinking that is strategically nestled in the Nation's Capitol of the world, look no further than the Catholic University of America (CUA). As a returning adult student, my educational journey has been a rewarding experience. Being embraced by individuals and educators who push you to think critically and strategically to make this world a better place has been a life-changing experience.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2019

The price tag is pretty high, but the teachers are absolutely fantastic, and my classes in Theatre Education have been exactly what I need to further my career.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

CUA's MSW program has been accredited for 75 years, and that is a testiment to the quality of education you are getting. They have a great team of faculty that are always willing to help you out, and they show that they really care. The only con would be the cost of a CUA education.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The online program is great for individuals who cannot attend campus classes. It makes obtaining your graduate degree more attainable. This program is very time consuming and equally if not more difficult than attending the brick and mortar school. It is recommended that you not work while in the program but if you have to, with a lot of hard work and determination you can get you degree.
