The Catholic Distance University


Can anyone tell me anything about:

The Catholic Distance University was established in 1983 to respond to the need for life-long spiritual formation and a deeper knowledge of Church Teaching. CDU’s mission calls for transmitting faithfully and systematically the teachings of Sacred Scripture, the living Tradition of the Church and the authentic Magisterium, as well as the spiritual heritage of the Fathers, Doctors and Saints.


I haven’t taken any courses through them but I’ve heard good things about them. Try doing a search here…


I have taken some of the seminars they have (non credit), they are good. They are also accredited, and they have good Catholic clergy etc. on their board.


I have taken a few classes through CDU. They are all excellent. Very well done, though some are more rigorous than others. I am actually planning on obtaining my BA in Theology through CDU and then going on to Law School, but I am wondering if any Law Schools will respect a degree obtained through a distance school. Any thoughts?
