CEFC Graduates Now Eligible for Graduate School Credit from Franciscan University


2021 CEFC Cohort

The Institute for Catholic Liberal Education is thrilled to announce that graduates of its Catholic Educator Formation and Credential Program are eligible to receive up to nine graduate credits toward Franciscan University’s Master of Arts in Catholic Studies program.  

“We are excited about this partnership,” said ICLE Executive Director Elisabeth Sullivan. “ICLE and Franciscan University are committed to deepening the vocations of well-formed Catholic educators who will be strong leaders in the evangelizing mission of Catholic education. In fact, Franciscan is not alone; a number of other Catholic institutions of higher learning are working toward similar credit for a variety of their MA programs. It’s inspiring to see these new pathways for even deeper formation!”

The MA in Catholic Studies from Franciscan University of Steubenville is a 30-credit-hour online program that aims to help students deepen their understanding of what it means to see the world with Catholic eyes.
