Religious and Pastoral Studies
The IRPS offers three programs of study that accommodate a busy work schedule. With course offerings on evenings and weekends, it's possible to complete the 18-hour certificate program in three semesters or the 36-hour Master degree program in 3 years. The Institute combines the intellectual study of a wide variety of theological areas with pastoral formation. Students are encouraged to ask passionate and rigorous questions about God, the mysteries of the human person, and the life of the Church. Moreover, they develop the habit of theological reflection so necessary for all ministers in every pastoral setting.
