Theology

The M.A. in Theology degree offers students the rich heritage of Catholic Church teaching, providing them with an extensive academic foundation in specific theological disciplines. For those interested in pursuing doctoral studies, the program offers the option of a research track that requires a major thesis, language proficiency and a comprehensive exam. For those who do not wish to pursue further graduate studies, the program offers the option of a general track consisting of coursework that provides a substantial and comprehensive overview of the Catholic faith.
