“Catholic theology, taught in a manner faithful to Scripture, tradition, and the Church’s Magisterium, provides an awareness of the Gospel principles which will enrich the meaning of human life and give it a new dignity.” (Ex corde ecclesiae, 20). Faithful to the Christian message as it has come to us through the Church, the mission of the Theology Department is to introduce students to Catholic theology as an exercise in “faith seeking understanding.” Mindful of its ethical obligations to the Church and to the world, the Department also seeks to foster ecumenical awareness and concern for social justice and to prepare student majors for teaching, parish work, youth ministry, and graduate studies. The Department of Theology offers a major and minor in Theology and a major in Evangelization and Catechesis.
