M.A. Theology and Society

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Master of Arts in Theology and Society program offers a thoughtful and supportive educational environment in which to study a range of theological disciplines, while also engaging in conversation with the questions and needs of American and global society. This interaction between Catholic and other Christian traditions, on the one hand, and contemporary culture, on the other, will inform both professional and volunteer work in church, school, service, or marketplace contexts. The program puts "Faith and Culture in Critical Conversation" with one another. Courses in biblical studies, systematic theology, interreligious relations, historical theiology, and ethics are designed to interrelate and to offer a dynamic dialogue with the challenges of our world. Applicants should have a background in theology or religious studies, such as undergraduate coursework, diocesan ministerial certification, ministry training, or related experience and study.
