School of Humanities and Social Sciences
HSS is the cornerstone of St. Mary's liberal arts and Marianist education. With more than 20 disciplines to choose from, this is the largest school on campus.
In the Theology Department at St. Mary’s University, students explore the sources and ideas central to Christian faith while searching for practical application that faith has for the way people and communities live. Through critical investigation and the use of diverse methods, students in the Theology program apply critical thinking and interdisciplinary knowledge to understand the origins of Christianity and its meaning for today.
The interdisciplinary Theology curriculum at St. Mary’s is rooted in the Catholic and Marianist tradition of service while offering courses that are inclusive of all students and faith traditions. Our faculty is comprised of highly-skilled professors, researchers and ministers who understand the University’s adherence to Catholic and Marianist tradition. With their guidance, students will thoroughly probe the harmonization of spirituality and human existence.
