M.A. Theology Program Goals

  1. To educate students in the discipline of Catholic theology, attending to the biblical, historical, philosophical, and systematic roots of Catholic life and belief in a manner that is critical, accurate, and informed by current scholarship;
  2. To develop in students a coherent and detailed knowledge of their theological concentrations, including classical and current problems and insights in those concentrations, their developing methodologies, and their current scholarly literature, together with the ability to articulate this knowledge in speech and writing;
  3. To train students in the skills of theological research, including the use of traditional library resources and new media resources, as well as in the normal methods and style of theology; and
  4. To foster in students sound habits of study, dialogue, and discerning theological judgment, especially with a view to their roles in the work of evangelization and/or their further academic work in theology.
