Welcome to the Department of Theological Studies website! Our department teaches theology and investigates the broader area of theological thought and experience. Our faculty are committed to the encouragement of learning, the education of the whole person, the service of faith, and the promotion of justice as rooted in educational tradition of Loyola Marymount University. We offer graduate programs in Theology and Pastoral Theology on a full or part-time basis.
The Bioethics Institute and Department of Theological Studies invite students, staff, faculty, and administrators to discuss James Keenan’s University Ethics: How Colleges Can Build and Benefit from a Culture of Ethics in light of our own University’s mission, identity, and labor practices. A Reading Group will meet every-other Thursday of the spring term, from February 25 through May 5th, 5-7 pm, in William Hannon Library room 324. All members of the LMU community – without exception – are encouraged to participate. A limited number of free books will be available, and refreshments will be provided, thanks to sponsorship from the Catholic Studies program, CSJ Center for Reconciliation and Justice, and Students for Labor and Economic Justice (SLEJ). For more information, contact Anna.Harrison@lmu.edu or Elizabeth.Quiros-Loe@lmu.edu, or visit cal.lmu.edu/event/readinggroup.
