There is growing evidence that the formation of galaxies and the growth of central black holes must be closely related. This ``grand unification'' of AGN and galaxies can be tested through studies of the AGN host galaxies. Using the deep multi-color HST ACS imaging data, we describe the morphologies of AGN host galaxies in the GOODS (Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey) southern field, which coincides with the Chandra Deep Field - South. We compare these to the morphologies of normal galaxies at the same (photometric) redshifts, also taken from the GOODS ACS data.

Ground-based imaging data were taken at ESO 2.2m, NTT, VLT, and NOAO 4m telescopes and made publicly available.

This work is supported by NASA.
