What We Do:

We acquaint students with Christianity’s long and disciplined reflection on the quest for God, wisdom and human fulfillment. While we accent Catholic theology, we also study other Christian and religious traditions, including Judaism and Islam.

How We Stand Out:

  • Theology at a Jesuit university emphasizes intellectual rigor, faith that does justice, encounter and dialogue.
  • Our faculty are internationally recognized and published scholars.
  • We foster a strong sense of community with departmental clubs and events that will enrich your learning experience.
  • We offer faculty-led travel courses to Uganda, Jerusalem, Germany and Croatia.
  • Our small class sizes allow professors to get to know you on an individual basis.
  • The flexibility of our program allows students to pursue a double major or a minor in another area of study.




Inside the Classroom:

  • Learn to think critically and to communicate intelligently about God, Christ, the Gospel, faith and the meaning of life.
  • Build bridges between the Church and the world and among different religious traditions.
  • Learn what it means and how to be “men and women for others.”
  • Study key aspects of human living, such as friendship, marriage, work, rest, knowledge and love.
  • Examine historical and contemporary issues like medical ethics and economic justice.
  • Visit local churches, synagogues, mosques and temples, and welcome visitors to your classroom.
  • Intern at local schools and social service organizations.

Student Research:

Your professors will guide you in research projects and papers, and you’ll have the opportunity to present your work at conferences.

Career Outcomes:

What can you do with a major in theology?
Over the past decade, our students have gone on to work in:

  • High schools (as teachers and campus ministers)
  • Parishes (as directors of religious education and music ministry)
  • Hospitals (as pastoral outreach coordinators)
  • Social service agencies (as counselors, directors and caseworkers)

Many students continue their study of theology in master’s and doctoral programs, as well as seminaries across the country. Others pursue graduate degrees in:

  • Law
  • Counseling
  • Medicine
  • Clinical psychology
  • Art history
