Program Description:

In our research and teaching, we emphasize a broad understanding of the Christian theological tradition in light of the Second Vatican Council and questions raised by modern culture. We investigate the implications of theological knowing and cultural expressions of that knowledge, as well as the influence of culture on theology, study these relations from multiple academic perspectives, and prepare you to sufficiently master these disciplines for conducting further research (doctoral studies), teaching (secondary schools), or working as a lay minister. Our graduate faculty members are widely recognized for excellence in both teaching and research, and 100 percent hold the highest degree in their respective discipline, ensuring a premier theological education, top-tier programs and teaching, and curricular innovation.
