Course work in philosophy is typically required as part of a core curriculum for preservice teachers who enter undergraduate teacher education programs in Catholic colleges and universities. The purpose of this study was to explore requirements in philosophy in undergraduate teacher education programs at selected Catholic colleges and universities as identified by The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College: What to Look for and Where to Find It (Esposito, 2007c). This is accomplished primarily through an examination and analysis of the philosophy requirements and course descriptions at these selected institutions. Specific content from the course descriptions examined is discussed in relation to teacher education with recommendations for practice at Catholic colleges and universities provided.
