--Three elective credits may be taken from among the preapproved extra-departmental courses listed on this page. The TRS Director of Undergraduate Programs may approve additional courses (for example, a course taken overseas or a particular themes or topics course not listed explicitely in the University Catalog). Because such courses do not carry the Core Theology (CTHL) attribute, they will count toward the Minor degree only with prior approval from the Director.
--The total number of elective credits from outside the TRS Department (including courses taken overseas) must not exceed 3 credit hours.
Villanova University was founded in 1842 by the Order of St. Augustine. To this day, Villanova’s Augustinian Catholic intellectual tradition is the cornerstone of an academic community in which students learn to think critically, act compassionately and succeed while serving others. There are more than 10,000 undergraduate, graduate and law students in the University’s six colleges.
