Program Mission

The mission of the Theology Program is to teach Catholic theology “in a manner faithful to scripture, Tradition, and the Church’s Magisterium” and thereby to provide “an awareness of the Gospel principles that will enrich the meaning of human life and give it a new dignity” (Ex corde ecclesiae, 20). Faithful to the Christian message as it has come to us through the church, the Theology Program introduces students to Catholic theology as an exercise in “faith seeking understanding.” Mindful of its ethical obligations to the Church and the world, the program also seeks to foster ecumenical awareness and concern for Catholic Social Teaching and to prepare student majors for teaching, parish work, youth ministry, and graduate studies

Degree Objectives

  • Foster ecumenical awareness and concern for social justice.
  • Prepare student majors for teaching, parish work, youth ministry, and graduate studies.
