The Department of Undergraduate Theology serves a fundamentally two-fold purpose. First, it provides part of the intellectual formation of men preparing for the Roman Catholic priesthood by offering the theological completion of the foundations laid by the instruction of the Department of Philosophical Theology in both the Bachelor of Arts in Catholic Theology program and the Pre-Theology program of the Seminary School of Theology. Its mission and the content of its program are in accordance with the wishes of the Holy See and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops as articulated in the Program of Priestly Formation, 5th edition. Second, it provides Seton Hall's undergraduate theological education for students of any career interest or track through a degree and minor program suited for those who desire to learn the Catholic intellectual tradition as well as to deepen an informed faith.

The basic objectives of the courses in the department are:

  • To know the fundamental beliefs and elements of the Catholic Faith
  • To show the relationship of this Faith to fundamental human concerns and issues
  • To stimulate the growth of informed Faith

By the end of these courses, students should be able to:

  • Explore their Faith more deeply according to these realizations
  • Articulate this awareness
  • Engage the Church and the larger culture with this relationship for the sake of the New Evangelization
