Theological Studies

Grounded in the Roman Catholic tradition, the Department of Theological Studies invites students to analyze questions of faith, the divine, and ultimate meaning in the context of religious thought and practice. Through intellectually rigorous exploration of the full range of possibilities and ambiguities of faith, students of Theological Studies come to appreciate both the intrinsic value of religious inquiry and the role of religion in building a more just world. The Department offers several degree programs: an undergraduate major in Theology, an undergraduate minor in Theology, and two Master of Arts degrees (Theology and Pastoral Theology). The MA in Pastoral Theology program includes an additional ministry and counseling emphasis in addition to foundational courses in theology.
