The Catholic University of America is a jewel in the nation’s capital — 176 green acres in an urban setting — welcoming undergraduate and graduate students from all religious traditions and around the globe. There is a Metrorail stop next to campus, so Washington, D.C., attractions are all within easy reach.
Given the location, politics is a popular major. The Benjamin T. Rome School of Music, Drama, and Art offers a magnet for creative types. The Conway School of Nursing is one of the best in the nation, and the School of Engineering is among the few in the competitive national Grand Challenges program. The School of Architecture and Planning offers a rare classical architecture concentration.

The Catholic University of America Reviews
The high cost of tuition combined with room and board is a rather large obstacle for many students, but it is well worth the investment. CUA is also very generous with their scholarship money, and the financial advisors will do anything they can to meet the financial needs of their students.
As a CUA student, I find my needs both academic and living well met.
