Catholic Studies Electives for College Credit
Through a partnership between St. Thomas More University Parish and Christendom College, our college students are able to take part in for credit courses on the Catholic tradition. These undergraduate elective courses are offered through the Christendom Graduate School of Theology. Course credit is awarded by Christendom College and students may then apply for transfer credit at BGSU. Additional fees apply. Partial scholarships are available on a limited basis from St. Thomas More.
