Theological Studies Graduate Programs

Welcome to the Theological Studies Graduate 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 Theological Studies and Pastoral Theology on a full or part-time basis. While both programs can be completed at Loyola Marymount University, we also offer Pastoral Theology through our San Gabriel Cohort Program in Baldwin Park, CA.
