Catholic Theology

Imagine a program that helps you to "think big" and discover your purpose in life as you become rich as a person! At Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, we are happy to accompany you on a transformative journey as you learn more about Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church, and your God-given talents and mission.

With a B.A. in Catholic Theology from Seton Hall, you will gain a solid foundation to "open your heart" and prepare for a life of service to the Church and to society in fields such as medicine, law and education or through a vocation to the priesthood and religious life. Experience an education rooted in the teaching mission of the Catholic Church, guided by professors who possess the mandatum to teach from the Archbishop of Newark.

A Place Where You Can Grow

Seton Hall nurtures the faith of students like Chris Adams, emphasizing servant leadership, compassion, morality and ethics.

Kiersten Lynch

"I have found that studying theology, in conjunction with my other classes, gives a purpose to what we do. I have realized that I am not studying just to get a job and make an income; my studies are -and should be -ordered toward something else: a higher calling and a purpose to do something in the world with a heavenly goal in mind."

Kiersten Lynch


Since Catholicism is a living tradition, our program stretches well beyond the University's walls. We offer concrete opportunities to understand and experience the Catholic faith firsthand.

Students choose from two program options:

  • Option 1 explores the interaction between faith and reason that is at the root of Catholic thought. It follows the academic requirements of the Program of Priestly Formation (Fifth Edition, 2005).

  • Option 2 focuses on a concentration of your choice within the field of theology: systematic theology, sacred Scripture, moral theology or spiritual theology.
