The Institute for Spirituality and Social Justice of Xavier University enables students to draw upon the resources of the world’s religious traditions (especially the Catholic/Ignatian traditions) to foster personal and social renewal, a deeper theological imagination, ethical analysis, and effective action for the creation of a more just and ecologically sustainable world.

Our graduate theology program prepares students for a variety of vocations and career options, such as teaching, chaplaincy, youth ministry, nonprofit work, and other forms of social/pastoral ministry. Students can also enroll to prepare for future doctoral studies or simply to deepen their theological, ethical, and spiritual growth. Classes are available in a variety of formats, including in-person and synchronous online options, evenings, weekends, and some condensed 8-week and 2-week classes.
