Studying with us

Is Catherine of Siena College for you?

All sorts of people study with Catherine of Siena College — women and men, young and old, from different cultures and contexts. Some of our courses will appeal to anyone interested in learning more about gender, justice, women in society, religion, and theology. Other courses are particularly designed for students, and community and religious leaders living and working in particular regions or contexts.

What do we offer?

We offer a range of short 6-week online courses exploring gender studies, justice, religion, and theology. Academics and scholar-practitioners from across the globe help to create and tutor these courses, and successful completion results in a Certificate of Attendance from Catherine of Siena College. We also offer 20-credit validated undergraduate modules which are accredited by the University of Roehampton.

What do our students say?

"The course has confirmed in me the desire to be compassionate, to listen and appreciate difference; maybe, also, to be clear in my own thinking and present it without fear."

"The live chat discussions on Skype were intellectually stimulating, challenging, honest, thought-provoking and expertly moderated by the course tutor."

"The experience was warm, friendly and very educative. It was a place where I could tap into various kinds of expertise and experiences."

"I have been able to integrate the material in my work, presentations and engagement in both academic and non-academic circles."

"I came away with a clearer spiritual vision, a deeper intellectual engagement with my faith, a heightened sense of God’s presence in my life and desire to do God’s will. I believe the repercussions of the courses are still playing out in my life and relationships."

"I found Violence against women: War, the Domestic Sphere and Religion profoundly educative, inspiring and eye-opening. Learning the various course themes from the standpoint of a man and a Religious leader, I was awakened to crucial aspects pertaining to violence against women I was oblivious to. Evidently coming from highly informed positions of the subject area, the course instructors presented the material in a thought-provoking manner that shaped strong gender-conscious theological convictions in me."
