Website Review: Catholic Distance University

A review based on:


Catholic Distance University was the first catechetical institute in the United States to receive official approval from the Vatican Congregation for the Clergy in 1983. CDU offers adults a carefully designed curriculum of doctrinal, moral and spiritual formation that combines the convenience of learning at home or at work with the academic benefits of a highly qualified faculty. The site serves as an introduction to CDU and as a resource for its students.
