Welcome to the Theology Department

Theology Department

Our Mission.

Grounded in Catholic theological tradition, open to all wisdom traditions, and committed to academic rigor, the Theology Department at the University of St. Thomas educates students to become religiously literate persons who think critically, creatively, and constructively about the most profound dimensions of human existence in order to engage the world's pressing challenges and to advance the common good.

Our Program.

Theology is the academic discipline that brings the tools of scholarship to the study of God and human experience of God's relation to the world. Students at St. Thomas take three theology courses as part of their core curriculum. The Theology Department has two options for students wishing to complete a major in theology: one in general theology and the other in lay ministry. We also offer two certificates in theology: one in lay ministry designed for church workers, and another in Catholic healthcare ethics designed for persons in the healthcare fields. In addition, we offer four minors in theology: the general minor in theology, biblical studies, faithful citizenship and the common good, and interreligious studies and comparative theology.
