CDU Student Karl BroussardMeet Karlo Broussard

Do you wonder what you can do with a degree in theology? Karlo Broussard, who received his BA in Theology degree from CDU in 2009, has found a way to turn his passion for evangelization and defense of the Faith into a profession.

Karlo is a full-time speaker and apologist for The Magis Center, which was founded by Father Robert Spitzer to explore and share the close connection between reason and faith as revealed by new discoveries in science, philosophy, and the historical study of the New Testament. Karlo is also the founder and director of The Divine Child Institute for Catechetical Renewal, which is a non-profit dedicated to helping pastors in the Diocese of Yakima, Washington.

Karlo enrolled in CDU’s undergraduate program for two reasons.  “First, the program was 100% in harmony with the teachings of the Magisterium. Second, the CDU undergraduate theology program was the only one of its kind,” he says.

Karlo’s busy schedule made CDU’s online degree program an excellent option.

“At the time when I enrolled, I had already started my family with my wife and firstborn son and thus was unable to attend any on-campus program.  CDU was the solution to my dilemma.  It allowed me to achieve my goals in formal education in theology and further my career.”
