Graduate Programs in Philosophy and Theology
Since DUC is primarily a research institution, its Master’s and PhD students benefit from generous scholarships and in-depth seminar discussions. Each student is assigned a thesis advisor who provides guidance and direction during the writing of the thesis proposal and thesis.
The campus is located in the heart of the Nation’s Capital and is part of a very active academic community, with five universities in the region. There are many opportunities to take part in academic and professional conferences. A formal affiliation agreement with Carleton University, our host institution, enables DUC students to avail themselves of the resources of a large university, while benefitting from the advantages of being registered at a small, specialized, institution.
DUC’s successful graduates have several compelling options available to them after completing their program of studies. Many work as teachers at the high school or university level, others go on to study law, medicine or business, while still others become chaplains or enter the religious life. Whatever the chosen pathway, DUC graduate students acquire skills that give them a professional edge as well as a passion for lifelong learning.
