Now in their ninth year, the Summer Seminars in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition are open to doctoral students in the humanities, social sciences, and other relevant areas of study. Each seminar includes a week of intensive discussion based on close reading of the assigned texts as well as daily presentations given by the professor and student participants. Deep familiarity with the material is not required to apply. The goal of each seminar is twofold: first, to enable participants to gain mastery over the material under discussion, both for teaching and research purposes; and second, to deepen their understanding and awareness of the Catholic intellectual tradition.

Accepted applicants receive room, board, and a travel stipend. For details about the seminars and the application requirements, visit the online application site below. If you have further questions, please refer to our FAQ or contact us.

Applications for our 2018 Summer Seminars are not yet available.
